This ethnography seeks to understand the connections between livelihoods, risk, capital and migration by using a framework which considers not only economic implications but more importantly, the social and cultural underpinnings of the phenomena under study. Drawing on the lived experiences, ideas, beliefs and attitude of men and women from two migration-intensive villages in Comilla, Bangladesh, the study attempts to explore the causal links between lack of security in people’s lives and livelihoods and overseas labour migration.

Epistemology or sources of knowledge has always been problematic and contentious. This is not only with reference to the issue of hegemony, when the empowered tends to impose its ‘knowledge’ on the disempowered but also with reference to the political contamination of disciplinary quests and treatment of space, which often tends to distort knowledge itself.

The absence of an accessible and credible justice and governance system not only adversely impinges on citizens fundamental rights but also regards growth and development. Accordingly, issues of rule of law, judicial independence, equality, accountability and non-discrimination have in the past few years transcended the boundaries of legal arena and have become the focus of development discourse.

The book intends to show how the Bangladeshi women workers view themselves and their actions within the given cultural, political and economic setting.

Surveys find that compared to other Asia countries sex-workers in Bangladesh report the highest number of partners, and the lowest rate of condom use. While these statistics are serious warning signals for a probable HIV/AIDS epidemic, the overwhelming majority of sex-workers have other immediate concerns such as poverty, threats of eviction from brothels, extreme uncertainties in city streets, total rejection by society, and exploitation by the controllers ( the police topping the list) of the trade.

This book examines the lives of Bangladeshi children and adolescents roughly between 8 and 16 years old, exposing vast discrepancies in the rights they are able to exercise. For example, middle class children and the young domestic servants working in their homes may be roughly the same age but they have profoundly different roles, rights and obligations.

The Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) in the southeast of Bangladesh is unique and attractive to outsiders. It forms a bridge between South Asia and Southeast Asia. From the plains one is amazed to see the picturesque mountain landscapes. The hill indigenous people who are divided into 12 groups exhibit distinct and different cultures. These amazing, amusing, honest and always smiling people seem to be part of Nature. But this mountainous region and its original inhabitants have undergone enormous assault and sufferings due to ill-conceived development initiatives and human greed.
