Once dubbed a ‘basket case’ and struggling with mass starvation, poor infrastructure, gender disparity, political turmoil, and aid dependency, Bangladesh has over the past 45 years made remarkable progress.  Changes are visible in all spheres of life, including culture, society and politics.

And yet the country still faces significant challenges, including continued inequality, climate change, rising authoritarianism, and corruption.
