The secretariat was established in late 2015 following a decision taken by the cabinet at the time to productively implement decisions, programmes and processes related to reconciliation.
The secretariat is vested with the task of planning and implementing the reconciliation process in Sri Lanka. It also coordinates and facilitates policy making and implementing agencies.
Cabinet has approved the proposal made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to provide necessary human resources and funds for the secretariat.
The secretariat for coordinating reconciliation mechanisms is headed by Mano Tittawella who serves as the Secretary General of the secretariat.
The Office of Missing Persons, Truth, Justice, Reconciliation and Non-Recurrence Commission, Judicial Mechanism and Office of Reparations will function under the secretariat. (Colombo Gazette)
