No. 023/2012 dated 7 February 2012
The Challenge of Radicalisation: Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh
Iftekharul Bashar       
The announcement of a foiled coup last month underscored the emergence of the Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) as a new security challenge in Bangladesh. Despite its aim to overthrow the country’s democratically elected government, HT is attracting support for its IT-enabled ideology due to the country’s confrontational politics and government’s poor economic performance.

No. 022/2012 dated 7 February 2012
India-Thai Relations: Look East, Look West
Rahul Mishra and Sana Hashmi       
India marked two decades of its Look East Policy by inviting Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra as the chief guest at this Year’s Republic Day celebrations. While India is keen to widen and deepen its strategic footprint in East Asia, Thailand regards India as its gateway to South Asia.
