Impact of Political Protests: A case study on Bangladesh

概要

Political protests in the form of strikes, locally known as hartals, remain quite common in the former Indian subcontinent countries. Such a form of protest is associated with a mass movement intended to cause a total shutdown of economic activities and closure of educational institutes, and often results in coercion, violence, and damage to public and private properties. Hartals have been instrumental in strengthening the democratic progress in sub-continent during and after the anti-colonial struggles. However, even long after the post-colonial periods had ended and democracy restored, hartals remain a prominent part of political culture for this part of the world. Along with Bangladesh, both India and Nepal still face a concerning number of hartals on a yearly basis, and their occurrence have risen quite sharply over the years (Rudolph and Rudolph 1987). In this study — utilizing micro and macro — economic framework and employing primary and secondary sources of data, we plan to systematically study the impact of this form of political protest in Bangladesh.
