Bangladesh at 50

18:00 to 20:00
(GMT+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris

The aspirations and achievements of the Bangladesh independence movement are the focus of this seminar and cultural performance. The emergence of Bangladesh was the outcome of successive popular movements for cultural identity, and economic and political emancipation. Shared cultural values carried political significance and inspired both the language movement of 1952, and the independence movement in 1971. Fifty years later, Bangladesh is now moving out of the group of ‘least developed countries’. Nonetheless, robust democratic institutions are not yet in place, and there are growing concerns within both academia and civil society about the country’s political trajectory.

The Centre for Development and the Environment at the University of Oslo invites to this concert and seminar taking place at Litteraturhuset in Oslo. A panel of experts will discuss Bangladesh’s internal political and economic dynamics, its interactions with foreign economies, as well as development cooperation with Norway. The seminar is followed by a cultural performance by the Lund International Tagore Choir.

Please note, the event will take place in Norwegian only.
