Dean's Message

It is a great privilege for me to issue a message for the 2nd volume of the e-journal of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Ruhuna,Sri Lanka is dedicated to the production of socially desirable knowledge and dissemination such knowledge for the benefits of human beings. Further, universities are challenged to produce knowledge which is comparable with the best and brightest in the world.

I believe that many of the valuable research findings remain un-published due to many and varied reasons. The initiative of launching an e- Journal for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Ruhuna, Matara, Sri Lanka aimed at providing a platform for young researchers publish their studies and to have healthy academic debate. I wish all the success for the new issue of the “Humanities and Social Science Review” . Finally; I thank the Editorial Board and the Review Committee for their untiring effort to make this important academic work a success.
