The Politics and Law of Democratic Transition: Caretaker Government in Bangladesh

Date: 18 June 2018
Time: 5:00 PM
Venue: Paul Webley Wing (Senate House) Room: S312

Abstract

As a relatively new democracy, Bangladesh has been encountering serious problems because of a prevailing culture of mistrust, weak governance institutions, constant election manipulation and a peculiar socio-political history, which led to a unique form of transitional remedy in the form of an unelected neutral ‘Caretaker Government’ during electoral transitions. This book provides a contextual analysis of the CTG mechanism including its inception, operation, manipulation by the government of the day, and its abrupt demise. It queries whether this constitutional provision actually remains a crucial tool to safeguard free and fair elections.

Speakers: Emeritus Professor of South Asian Laws SOAS, Professor Werner Menski and Dr. Sonia Zaman Khan.
