Topic: “Bangladesh India Relations: A Role Model for Neighbours?”

Bangladesh and India are not just two neighbors like others. The history of Bangladesh, especially in terms of the independence struggle of Bangladesh, is inseparable from the role and contribution of India in 1971. Yet, the two countries are sovereign and the public of both countries deserve that their national as well as common, neighborly interests are duly upheld. Over the last few decades, there have been many tensions underlying the bilateral relationship between the two countries, and the tension keeps growing. Despite the broad goodwill toward the big neighbor whose role was instrumental in Bangladesh's independence, there is deep and growing dissatisfaction from Bangladeshi people regarding the way the interests and dignity of the country are handled by India. Which direction this multifaceted relationship between two close neighbors is heading to and how a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship can be fostered in the framework of neighborly role models is a major concern and this lecture is expected to explore the relevant issues.
