BANGLADESH RESEARCH SERIES FACT SHEET NO. 1.0: Bangladesh on the Brink
abstract
This fact sheet provides a snapshot of findings from the first RESOLVE Network mapping effort from RESOLVE’s 2016-2017 Bangladesh Research Initiative. Findings from the study map emergent trends in political violence in Bangladesh and provide insight into the sharp rise of violent extremism in the country. The findings are supported by desk research and findings from three expert workshops hosted by the RESOLVE Network in Bangladesh and Washington, DC from November 2016 to April 2017. Discussions with stakeholders in Bangladesh and a desk review of the literature revealed critical gaps in current research, particularly with respect to the link between domestic dynamics and the wider international trends that have catalyzed a surge in politically motivated violence targeting civilians around the world.
