Using the concept of - -proximal mapping, we study the existence and sensitivity analysis of solution of a parametric general variational-like inequality problem in uniformly smooth Banach space. The approach used may be treated as an extension and unification of approaches for studying sensitivity analysis for various important classes of variational inequalities given by many authors in this direction.
