  • Air Mobility, Ten Heads and Universal Authority: Constructing Ravana in
           the Folk Imagination of Sabaragamua - A Folkoric Study

    • Abstract: King Ravana has already attained a cult status in modern Sri Lanka owing to a resurgence of texts about the legendary king that suddenly flooded the bookshops as well as the mass media. Yet, unseen by this phenomenon, a folktale collection focusing on Ravana was released for public consumption by Gunasekera Gunasoma under the titled Sabaragamuwa Ravana Jana Katha (Ravana Folktales of the Sabaragamuwa Region). This study undertakes a re-reading of these folktales using the folkloric postulate of ‘folk ideas’ in order to locate the modes of construction of the personality of ‘King Ravana’ and the insights such constructions might offer into the material conditions of the story creators/tellers/listeners. Folktales tend to carry cultural assumptions, as well as cultural prejudices, of common folks through the implicitly embedded ‘folk ideas’ in their narratives and this study intends to locate such ‘silent’ articulations and analyse them to understand a group of people’s own perceptions about the notions of leaders and leadership.

  • Information Printed on Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Labels: A Comparative
           Analysis of Australian and Sri Lankan Legal Framework

    • Abstract: Sugar is one of the main ingredients in sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs): a major contributor to added sugar intake in the diet. Excess consumption of added sugars can adversely affect human health mainly by contributing to non-communicable diseases. Information related to sugar content is usually declared on an SSB product in the section titled ingredients, nutrition information panel, non-addition claim and in front-of-pack labelling (FOPL). Various countries have implemented laws to disclose sugar-related information in SSBs. The aim of this research is to assess sugar labelling requirements for SSBs in Sri Lanka against international Codex standards and sugar labelling requirements in Australia. A doctrinal review was conducted based on legal related literatures. Both Sri Lankan and Australian legislations as well as Codex standards have provisions on ingredients and claims. FOPL is compulsory for Sri Lankan law for selected sugar sweetened beverages. FOPL is neither recommended by Codex currently nor made compulsory by Australian law; however, Australia does have a voluntary code in that regard. NIP, a compulsory requirement in codex standards is mandatory in Australian food label; whereas, it is not mandatory in Sri Lanka. Introducing legal provisions on nutrition information panel would not only align Sri Lankan law with international standards and jurisdictions but also contribute to the control of non-communicable diseases. Highlighting the sugar content raw in the NIP of SSB with ‘high sugar’ in red colour would further improve the expected outcome. Furthermore, more legal clarity will be achieved in Sri Lanka by adding definitions to terms ‘ingredient’ and ‘non-addition claim’. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00
       
  • Challenges for Bilingual education at the junior secondary level of
           education in Sri Lanka: Student and teacher perspectives

    • Abstract: The purpose of this qualitative case study is to understand the challenges for implementing Bilingual Education (BE) at the junior secondary level of education in Sri Lanka from the perspective of students and teachers. Six bilingual teachers and 30 students from Grades 6 and 8 of a selected school participated in the study. Focus Group Interviews (FGI) with the students and semi-structured interviews with the teachers were used to generate data. It has emerged in the analysis that both teachers and students face many challenges and issues in teaching, learning and assessments in their classrooms mainly due to lack of adequate and appropriate physical and human resources and the lack of necessary support from school and other educational authorities. Teachers with limited experience and training in BE had to face many difficulties in teaching and assessment of students due to the lack of sufficientL2 proficiency among their learners. Students, in turn, face challenges in learning and assessments due to the lack of necessary basic skills in L2 and support from their teachers, peers and home environments as well as self-learning skills. In conclusion, the authors argue that since BE is beneficial to both individuals and society, it needs to be expanded and further developed to enhance equity, inclusivity, and quality of education and capacity for lifelong learning among learners. Moreover, for successful implementation of BE, teachers and students should be adequately supported through a 'try level engagement' approach to education reforms.

  • Criminological Organized Network Models of Human Smuggling: An Analysis
           with Special reference to the United Nations Convention on Transnational
           Organized Crime and the Protocol against Smuggling of Migrants

    • Abstract: The Criminological Organized Network Model (CON Model), one of the theoretical models propounded by several scholars, postulates that the assignment of human smuggling is carried out by well-organized international criminal networks. This model elucidates the objectives, the form, and the tasks carried out by organized criminal groups. The United Nations Convention on Transnational Organized crime 2000 (UNCTOC) and the Protocol against Smuggling of Migrants via Air, Sea and Land (HS Protocol) are the major international legal instruments governing human smuggling. Both these instruments state that human smuggling is a transnational crime committed by organized criminal groups. Against this background the main objective of the paper is to examine as to how far the features of the CON Model has been translated into international legal instruments particularly in Article 2(a) of the UNCTOC and Article 3(a) of the HS protocol in order to identify the gaps in the said articles and make recommendations for comprehensive legal provisions in line with the CON Model of human smuggling. Doctrinal research incorporating conceptual, descriptive, interpretative, analytical, and comparative methodology have been utilized in the research. The paper discusses and analyzes the objectives, nature, and tasks of organized crime groups relevant to the definition of an organized criminal group and human smuggling as per the UNCTOC and the HS Protocol and draws out gaps in these definitions. It can be noted that the definition of the organized crime groups fails to be sufficiently comprehensive. There is uncertainty in the human smuggling protocol read with UNCTOC as to whether people who help the human smuggling operation on humanitarian grounds are guilty or not. The paper, it is hoped, will contribute to the establishing of a more comprehensive definition of an Organized Criminal Group (OCG) and set out a clear demarcation and differentiation between people who act with profit-making motives and the sympathetic supporters.

  • Healthcare Provider Responses and Preparedness towards Caring for Females
           who have Experienced Intimate Partner Violence in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Females who experience intimate partner violence have frequent and repeated contact with healthcare providers whose ability to provide care and support is contextual and often problematized by gendered attitudes and beliefs. This cross-sectional study examined healthcare providers' responses and preparedness to care for females who reported intimate partner violence in hospital and community care settings in Sri Lanka. In total, 405 healthcare providers from four provinces completed a questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive and analytical statistics. Of the 177 nurses, 145 doctors, and 83 midwives who participated in the study, most (76%) had met females living with intimate partner violence, but the types of violence reported to them, and their responses varied among the three professions. A range of factors operating at the individual, institutional, and community levels shaped healthcare provider responses and preparedness to support females reporting intimate partner violence (IPV). These results have implications for the training of healthcare providers and for putting in place adequate institutional resources in order to improve the health sector response to IPV.

  • Can Gender and Location Create Career Indecision among the Undergraduates
           of Management Studies in State Universities of Sri Lanka'

    • Abstract: Career indecision that refers to the inability to make a decision about an occupational field one wishes to pursue has been a focus of academic research over the last few decades. Career indecision, especially among university undergraduates, is a dynamic phenomenon that is being vicariously explored presently. Research has drawn attention to explore the determinants and consequences of career indecision among undergraduates. However, little is known about whether there is a significant difference of career indecision particularly among state university management undergraduates in Sri Lanka based on their gender and location. Thus, the purpose of this study is to explore whether there is any significant differences in career indecision among state university management undergraduates in Sri Lanka, when it comes to the segregation of the target population based on the gender as well as the geographical location of the state universities. A sample of 153 final year management students were selected using stratified sampling techniques from two metropolitan and two rural state universities. Both physical on online self-administered questionnaires were used to collect the data. Independent sample t-test was used to test the hypotheses. As per the key findings of the study, it was revealed that career indecisiveness was higher among males and the difference in career indecision between male and female management undergraduate is significant. Moreover, this study found that there are no significant differences in career indecision between students studying in peripheral or urban universities. These findings would be beneficial to undergraduates, policy makers and government institutions as well as for the society at large, when it comes to devising human resource development programs, related policies etc. As this study found empirical support for significant differences in career indecision between male and female management undergraduates, the authorities who design career counseling interventions need to pay attention on this. As male undergraduates experience relatively high degree of career indecisiveness, separate strategies are required to address the differences. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00
       
  • Online Learning during the COVID–19 Outbreak: Undergraduates’
           Perspective – A Case of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of
           Ruhuna, Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the mode of online learning has assumed an impactful role, especially in the field of higher education. The bulk of educational institutions have switched to online learning platforms for the continuation of academic programs. However, in the current literature on education, the perceptions of state university students on their engagements with this mode of learning have not yet been thoroughly examined. Therefore, this research was undertaken to investigate the perception of agricultural undergraduates towards online learning during the pandemic. The research examined the preferences of students for various characteristics of online classes, the perceptions of online learning and the benefits and disadvantages encountered by students engaged in online learning during the pandemic through an online survey of 334 students. Independent samples t-test revealed that there is a significant difference (t (332) = 2.120, p =0.035) in the choice of the duration of online classes between male (M=3.55, SD=0.948) and female students (M=3.81, SD=0.913). Interestingly, results of the two-way ANOVA revealed that there is a statistically significant interaction between the effects of gender and academic year on students’ interest in online learning, F (3, 326) = 3.788, p = .011. However, the majority of the students (41 %) faced connectivity/Network issues as their main problem during online learning. The homogeneity of the student group and the subject area limits the generalization of the findings to the vast majority. The study results can play a key role in developing future online classrooms with effective learning experiences. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00

  • Assessment of Blue Carbon Stock of Mangroves at Malwathu Oya estuary, Sri
           Lanka

    • Abstract: Mangroves occupy tropical and subtropical inter-tidal areas and provide numerous ecological functions and services. One such function is sequestration of atmospheric carbon, especially in their anoxic soils. This study is an attempt to quantify the total blue carbon stocks in vegetation and in soils of mangrove areas in Malwathu Oya estuary located in the dry/arid climatic zone in Sri Lanka. Plant biomass and the total organic carbon (TOC) content were estimated using allometric relationships available between biomass/TOC and stem diameter of constituent mangrove species. Published data on soil TOC of the same locality was used to estimate the total blue carbon stock associated with this mangrove area. Total biomass of the mangrove plants in Malwathu Oya estuary was 377 Mg ha-1 which contained 191 Mg C ha-1 of organic carbon sequestered by the plants. Above ground plant components contained 5 times more biomass and 5.5 times more carbon than those below ground. TOC in the mangrove soils was 346 Mg C ha-1 which was 1.8 times more than that in the vegetation. Total blue carbon stock of the mangrove ecosystem in Malwathu Oya estuary therefore was 537 Mg C ha-1, out of which 64% was sequestered in soils. Despite being in low rainfall coast this mangrove area retains more carbon than most other areas which may be possibly due to its pristineness and vegetation structure characterized by unique dominance of Sonneratia alba, which is considered a rare species among Sri Lankan mangroves.

  • Challenges of Mentoring Among University Academics in Nigeria

    • Abstract: Mentoring which is a process of tutoring a junior person in a workplace by a senior colleague is becoming more challenging especially in the university system. The objective of this study therefore is to provide empirical investigation in the Nigerian context on the challenges associated with mentoring for both the mentor and the protégé in the university system. The study employed a survey research design. The population consists of all academic staff in three randomly selected universities in Edo state namely: University of Benin, Ambrose Ali University, and Igbinedion University. The research instrument used was a structured questionnaire administered to academics across different cadres. Data collected were analyzed using frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation, exploratory factor analysis, t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA). All statistical analyses were done using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS 24). The study found that prominent mentoring challenges among Nigerian university academics include victimization, instant gratification, gender-based bias, work life imbalance and incivility. It was also found that mentoring challenges experienced by academics do not significantly differ based on demographic characteristics such as status, gender, age, qualification and work experience. The study recommends that universities and other tertiary institutions should promote an atmosphere of organizational harmony where faculty members will seek the growth of younger academic staff for the advancement of the educational system.
