TIB reports on private university: Rhetoric vs. reality

RECENTLY Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) through a research study has poked and pried the corruption of private universities along with their present state. The study revealed the level of corruption and involvement of stakeholders in white collar criminality. Aftermath of reaction of those involved or not is as usual denial. Few weeks or...

GROUND REALITIES

TIB report and state of denial

NO individual is perfect nor is any organization. By that measure, Transparency International Bangladesh may have its shortcomings. And yet its strengths have consistently outweighed its weaknesses. At this point of time, when politics stagnates and administration remains notorious for sloth, TIB gives us reason to hope that positive change will someday characterize life in this country. By coming forth with a report on the state of the nation's private universities, TIB has once more pointed out to us...

THE TIB report portrays a very dark picture of the local government bodies. But it only reconfirms what is already public knowledge.

The report that annoyed the minister

Editorial

TIB report

THE vituperative reaction from some of the members of the parliament on the recently published report of the TIB does not surprise us at all. In fact it has been the lot of the corruption watchdog during every regime to be excoriated by the ruling party for publishing reports that did not meet with their approval. The BNP did the same while it was in power and now it is the turn of the AL. This time the TIB report...

STRATEGICALLY SPEAKING

Indeed, making law is fun!

THANKS to the TIB again for giving us a performance report of the parliament, the focus being on the 9th Parliament, which, as appears from the report, had become sinecure for most MPs. Most of them were having a cushy job doing very little of what their primary job obligated them to do. At least that is the impression one gets from the TIB findings of a study that was presented to the media on Tuesday. The report covered the...
