Title: Internationalisation of ethnic conflicts Tamil separatism and LTTE.
Authors: Krishnan, S.

Abstract: This dissertation examines the growth of LITE (a Tamil guerrilla group fighting for a separate homeland in Sri Lankan) and the paradox in its strategy of internationalising the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka. The LTTE operates within a strategic ambiguity, practicing political terrorism within the country but portraying itself as an organisation of freedom fighters in the eyes of the international community, for its survival and to generate international pressure against the Sri Lankan government.
