The legal system of Bangladesh is being called upon to develop tools to compel the state to abide by the social justice mandate of the constitution and to promote the human rights of the underprivileged section of the society. The new statute book is rich in progressive laws but lacks a method of translating those laws into real benefits to the millions of people who most need the legal system’s support.

Implementation of laws in Bangladesh is unimaginative, unequal, indifferent, and unjust. ...

Is Water a Human Right? At Upcoming Vote, U.S. Isn't So Sure ...
According to the U.N., every person on Earth has the right to marry and found a family, to freely express his or her opinion, to earn equal pay for work and enjoy reasonable rest and leisure.

Or if a big corporation is polluting all your town's water, or if China has diverted your stream for a hydropower dam? What if seasonal rains are more frequently failing to arrive because our planet is warming? On July 28, this upcoming Wednesday, for the first time since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed 60 years ago, the ... market research, surveys and trends
Changing The Conversation
The entire Breitbart-Sherrod-NAACP-Tea Party mess is a lesson in how the left tries to sabotage and undermine conversations that don't suit it. It's a real time event version of what the Daily Caller chronicles in the Jornolist archives show about the media strategizing against Palin. The Democrats used their NAACP organization to try and brand the Tea Party as racist, thereby changing the conversation from criticisms of the Obama Administration, to an attack on the Tea Party itself, in order to delegitimize it, and discourage people from participating it. Breitbart's Sherrod attack was the equivalent of the ... market research, surveys and trends

Hidden shame of ship-breaking industry
Rizwana Hasan is a divisive figure in Bangladesh. Heralded by some as an eco-pioneer, a labor rights campaigner and a "take no prisoners" lawyer, she also is characterized as being on a mission to destroy an industry that employs thousands. Her works focuses on the effects of the ship-breaking industry in Chittagong. Each year hundreds of massive tankers, ferries and cargo ships from around the world are driven onto the mud flats in Chittagong, and then literally attacked by hundreds of men armed with little more than hammers, cutters and brute-force. They strip the ships for their scrap metal, salvaging what they can, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In 2008, Margaret Okeke awoke one July morning to find the floor of her home sinking beneath her feet. During the night, heavy rains had flooded the gorge near her family’s compound .
