National Values Survey: Sri Lanka 2011
Sri Lanka is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious society with four major religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Roman Catholicism. As the country emerges from decades of war, new ethno-religious dynamics are emerging which have implications for peace and coexistence between communities. This survey is meant to help uncover some of those dynamics. Within this complex and evolving ethno-religious landscape, The Asia Foundation conducted the National Values in Sri Lanka Survey in late 2011 to gain a more grounded understanding of people's perceptions of religious beliefs and practices, influence of religious leaders, inter-religious relations, and tolerance for religious expression.
