What our Agenda contains
What is happening right now
The World Bank Office in Bangladesh
Knowledge and development are complementary to each other. The connotation of knowledge is broad in the context of development. There is a need for a culture to be patronized by the state and a habit by its citizens to live in a knowledge based society. In the time of deadly corona virus, it is more necessary than before.
Professor, Department of Politics and Government, Illinois State University and Non-resident Senior Fellow at Atlantic Council, USA.
Politics is essentially a process of comprehending the rights as citizens, understanding the responsibilities, exercising these rights and fulfilling these responsibilities even in adverse situation, and engaging in endeavors for common good – individually and as a community.

For years now, legal reform initiatives have been focusing on empowering the poor and the marginalized to make strategic use of the law to access justice. However, these have not always delivered the desired outcomes primarily because in many cases, this was done by simply grafting borrowed ideas from alien legal cultures without tailoring the responses to the socio-legal realities and without addressing in full the contradictions inhering in the economic, political and structural processes in a given society.
Former Chief Information Commissioner, Bangladesh
Communication is one of the major components of behavioral and societal effort to perform a specific purpose. Knowledge is also an essential resource for the development of societies all over the world. Knowledge sharing has a very close link to communication in data, information and knowledge exchange process.
