Books covering foreign policy, security, diplomacy and international relations of Bangladesh are scarce. Quality analysis and contemporary issues are rarely observed in the existing literature. There is a need for in-depth knowledge about major issues affecting Bangladesh at bilateral, regional and global levels. It will equip policy makers and different stakeholders in the state agencies and departments with substantive information and analysis. This will fill up knowledge and information deficits, boost confidence and enhance the bargaining capacity of policy makers at different levels. The Initiative has focused on publishing books on specific themes and topics on Bangladesh and global affairs in different fields. These books will be part of a larger theme and books will be published each year focusing on the importance of the issues, conceptualization, implications and responses. This will play a critical role in medium- and long-term capacity building of the nation in dealing with foreign policy and security challenges from external sources.
