The daily struggle for scarce resources (land, water, credit, skills and employment opportunities) has implied that policy interventions to resolve one dilemma have often led to regressive reactions in other domains.

This panel will examine some of these challenges faced by Bangladesh from an interdisciplinary political economy perspective.
