Understanding the local power structure in rural Bangladesh

By David Lewis and Abul Hossain


This study of the rural power structure presents new qualitative data to analyse the changing formal and informal institutions which govern people’s lives in one area of rural Bangladesh. The research explores the ways in which disadvantaged individuals and groups seek to increase their influence and further their economic and social goals. It documents the barriers and challenges that people living in poverty face, and explores the current limits to these local change processes
