A The recent Asian and Mexican currency crises have provided a somber lesson that in a global economic setting, the exchange rate policy, and more broadly monetary and financial policy cannot be treated in a business as usual manner. The stake is high because exchange rate policy has profound impact on current and future macroeconomic performance. This book is a modest attempt to highlight the above contention from a broad perspective for the emerging market economy of Bangladesh.

The central theme of the book is the changing paradigms of conflict and conflict resolution after the events of September 11. It also considers options for the South Asian countries to respond to challenges which they face in the dichotomy of US-led war against terrorism, the relevance of peace process and confidence-building measures in order to resolve inter and intra-state conflicts in the region. Paradigms of conflict resolution are passing through a transitory phase but it is a temporary phenomenon.

Seldom is there an understanding that the women of Bangladesh are actively engaged in the organization and reproduction of international security. Secondly, it is a theoretical intervention to the debate as how best to understand the engendered relationship between the national and the international.

The last time this issue dominated an election campaign in a first world country was in the early eighties with Margaret Thatcher in Great Britain and Ronald Reagan in the United States. Thirty-six years after its birth, a Bangladesh caretaker government is facing the same issue. They are addressing it directly by instituting some useful reforms.

The book is the outcome of a seminar that looked at the nature of challenges and the policy options facing Bangladesh in achieving accelerated, sustained and equitable economic growth. Since the early 1990s, Bangladesh has notably improved its economic growth performance following the introduction of market-oriented liberalising economic reforms. The positive impact of economic growth on poverty was, however, compromised to some extent by a worsening of income distribution.
