Sri Lanka: Amnesty International writes to the IMF on Sri Lanka’s economic crisis

Index Number: ASA 37/5721/2022

Amnesty International has raised concerns regarding human rights protections in countries that have received assistance from the IMF in times of economic crisis in the past. To ensure that verbal commitments translate into real and effective protections in these difficult times, human rights must be central to any future economic reform program negotiated between the IMF and the Sri Lankan government. Protections for the ‘vulnerable and poor’ must translate into well designed and funded measures that allow all people to access and enjoy an adequate standard of living.
