Human Rights in Bangladesh 1997 presents an in-depth documentation of violations of human rights by state agencies during the year. Its incisive evidence of the negligence of the state in deterring violatioñsby non-state actors point to the causes for lapses in the rule of law in Bangladesh. This report is essential for an understanding of how weaknesses in public institutions have been sustained by a political culture which tolerates violations of human rights and democratic norms. Documentation of the situation of human rights is an annual exercise undertaken by four human rights organisations. The purpose of disseminating this information is to raise questions regarding the role of different actors: the civil society in promoting and protecting constitutional rights of citizens; the commitment of the political structures towards democratic practice; the responsibility of law enforcement agencies. The report seeks to create a demand for accountability of public and representative institutions.
