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.

In recent years the term social protection has gained currency in developmental discourse: encompassing the range of protective transfers, services and formal and informal safeguards that are available to protect people in need or at risk of being in need. Whilst migration offers a safety net for poorer people in search of alternative or supplementary livelihoods, it also deprives many, of access to formal and informal sources of support. Social protection concerns emerge at all stages of migration: before departure, in transit, at destination and upon return.

A pioneering effort, this book provides a penetrating analysis of problems facing the implementation of the Convention in the Rights of the Child (CRC) in Bangladesh, and offers, hopefully, realistic solutions. Its relevance extends to all developing countries where progress in children’s rights leaves much to be desired even after a decade of the adoption of the CRC by the international community. The book is a must for researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the field.
