The State of Governance in Bangladesh 2006: Knowledge, Perceptions, Reality

Published on 28 June 2006

In the context of a developing country like Bangladesh, studying governance is not an academic exercise but a means to understanding if and how the openness, transparency and accountability of the system will impact on the effectiveness of services delivered to the poor and the disadvantaged. After fifteen years of democratic rule in Bangladesh, the system remains unconsolidated, politicised, confrontational and marred by bad governance. The Centre for Governance Studies at BRAC University in Dhaka was established in 2005 to further understand the complexities and to identify the constraints facing governance in Bangladesh. In addition to its research projects, the Centre offers a Masters programme in Governance and Development focused on the continuing education of civil servants.
