Agriculture has always been a significant part of BRAC’s development approach and strategy.  Agriculture is seen as a major conduit for poverty reduction, improved food security, and women’s empowerment. Taking advantage of the government’s liberal policies towards NGO involvement in development, BRAC initiated major interventions in different agriculture sub-sectors including crops, poultry, livestock, and fisheries, and scaled them to reach millions of rural households.

Delivering public services to the satisfaction of the citizen is an important challenge confronted by democratic governments everywhere in the modern world. Unlike authoritarian rulers who may conveniently ignore public opinion, democratic governments can do it at their peril. As a natural rule, they have to be responsive to legitimate claims and demands of their citizen.
 
It is, however, now widely recognized that the government alone cannot make available different kinds of services that people may need.

Never in the history of human civilization has the veil, hijab or purdah become so much of a contentious issue. At the root of the contention, however, it has always been politics. This volume mainly focuses on South Asia, where the veiling of women has been a part of its age-old civilization, indeed, more as a marker of civility and not always from the standpoint of masculinity.

This book is a collection of eleven critical essays covering some of the implications of neoliberal development in Bangladesh. One of the major themes of this book is how the paradigm of neoliberalism, with its sole focus on free market, has transformed the very nature of the state. For the neoliberal states, market is both the ends and means of social wellbeing. While this ‘market-directed’ development approach can ensure certain levels of economic growth, it also brings out degrading quality of life, ecology and political governance.
