“Democracy and Good Governance: The Historical and Current Overview of Bangladesh”
This project deals with the situation of democracy in Bangladesh and explores the way in which recent liberal democracy has been understood within the framework of the governance agenda and ita impact on Bangladesh. In recent years, efforts have been made to ensure good governance by improving institutional performance and policing for greater transparency and accountability to sustain democracy in Bangladesh and elsewhere. Since gaining independence in 1971, The People’s Republic of Bangladesh has been riven by internal power struggles and economic chaos, while attempting to develop a democratic society. A predominately Islamic country, Bangladesh’s representative government is battling poverty, official corruption, organized crime and Islamic militants. Bangladesh has enjoyed more than four decades of independence and it has also witnessed thirteen years of military rule or governments dominated by the military. The institutional framework for parliamentary democracy was restored in Bangladesh in 1991. The Jatiya Sangsad (Parliament), comprising directly elected representatives of the people, has been the centerpiece of national politics. But, democracy in Bangladesh had so far gone hand in hand with corruption, human rights violations and criminalization threatening the state's economy and survival.
