Vikalpa – A new Citizen Journalism website in Sinhala and Tamil


We are pleased to announce the launch of Vikalpa, a new citizen journalism initiative in Sri Lanka that focuses on content in Sinhala and Tamil. Through the exploration of alternative narratives on conflict transformation, democracy, good governance and peace in Sri Lanka, this website aims to showcase voices rarely featured in mainstream media in the vernacular.

Vikalpa demonstrates the commitment of the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), Colombo, Sri Lanka to critique and strengthen governance and democracy through citizen journalism and new media. It also complements Groundviews, Sri Lanka’s first citizen journalism site and now a recognised standard for alternative perspectives, news, analysis and information on Sri Lanka.
