Founded in 2003, the One-Text Initiative (OTI) is an independent, multi-party political platform for facilitating structured dialogues at National, Provincial and District levels. Its key focus is to building consensus towards a democratic political solution to the ethno-political conflicting situation and the issues related to post-war reconciliation to ensure political and socio-economic stability in Sri Lanka. Initiative is owned and driven by Sri Lankan Political stakeholders themselves. The OTI has, over the years, created a sustained political space and time-tested processes for inclusive political dialogue. It has garnered highest level of trust of political stakeholders owing to the professional and responsible manner in which information is handled and disseminated. Moreover, around the OTI dialogue table all stakeholders are equal despite their constituency strengths or the posts they hold in the Parliament, Cabinet or any other body and are bounded by Chatham House Principles. Their engagement with each other in the OTI process is guided by ‘shared Values & Principles’ and is supported by qualified facilitators appointed with unanimous agreement of the parties themselves; technical inputs from subject experts; capacity development of political stakeholders and quality research, both empirical & action, which are hallmarks of the OTI Process.
