Description:
Is Bangladesh hurtling towards authoritarianism? The country has been witnessing a slow but steady erosion of democracy for the past decade, but the process has accelerated in recent days as the ruling Bangladesh Awami League (BAL) is further tightening its grip over the country. This presentation explores the pathway of Bangladesh's transformation from electoral democracy to electoral authoritarianism.
