From4 February 2014
in Brussels (Belgium)
Organised byEuropean Union together with the Bangladesh Forum Germany

The ‘Civil society and sustainable development in Bangladesh’ conference
was organised by the European Union together with the Bangladesh Forum
Germany. The conference took place at the Charlemagne building in Brussels
on 4 November 2014. The theme of the conference was the multiple roles that
civil society had played in the recent history of Bangladesh, how that role
was increasingly under threat due to recent political developments, the role
of civil society (trade unions) to promote decent labour conditions in the
garments sector, and a discussion on what donors could do to in support of
civil society in Bangladesh. It was well attended by a wide range of
participants, varying from high-level diplomats, EU officials, to civil
society representatives and academics, with lively discussions, especially on
the role of trade unions in promoting decent labour conditions, and on the
role that donors could play to support an independent civil society.
