Bombs and Ballots: Terrorism, Political Violence, and Governance in Bangladesh
In this policy paper, author Naureen Chowdhury Fink argues that the threats of terrorism and militancy in Bangladesh are best understood in relation to the political and socioeconomic challenges confronting the country.
Ms. Fink, a senior program officer at IPI, examines Bangladesh as it was following the installation of democratic government in 1991, and reviews current and historical literature, as well as interviews conducted over nearly two years in Bangladesh, London, New York, and Washington, DC. Interviewees included members of several political parties, academics, political analysts, officials, and civil-society groups from Bangladesh, as well as international experts and diplomats.
