Political Effects of Foreign Policy of Bangladesh
Subject: Economics | Topics:

 Admittedly there a pre-and post-75 Bangladesh divide in the politics of country depending on the political allegiance that one pays to either of the two major political parties of the country. But a problem of serious academic dimension arises when such a division is sought to be translated into the realm of foreign policy. A content analysis of BFP shows an apparent difference, at least in manifestations, between the two periods. But such a difference is more apparent than real. The discussion in the above section and in the sections below shows that in substance the post-1975 apparent tilt towards the western and Muslim countries had indeed been initiated by Bangabandu himself. The Post-1975 developments were, there  have been, thus, elements of both change   and continuity in the objectives and orientations of BFP over these decades.
