Human Rights Theory, Law and Practice in Bangladesh Lectures and Essays by Prof. Dr. Mizanur Rahman is an endeavour to explore all the theoretical and practical perspectives of human rights in Bangladesh. If any layperson, paralegal, student, teacher, researcher, or practitioner considers the dearth of literature on human rights jurisprudence in the country, this book may be a precious contribution of the author who bears an extensive experience and diverse skills in human rights scholarship amid learning, teaching and research in academia as well as in national and international organizations, coupled with his long-term affiliation as the Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of Bangladesh from 2010 to 2016. This book on human rights is a compendium of the author's research-oriented write-ups based on his lectures, conference papers, and reflections of his practical experiences and multidisciplinary academic and nonacademic attachments. In his long academic career at the Department of Law of the University of Dhaka from 1989 to now and also as a lead consultant at different organisations at national, regional, and multinational levels for several decades, Prof. Rahman, with specialization in international and comparative law has witnessed Bangladesh's commitment on human rights and its upheavals under different political regimes. He has meticulously observed all nuts and bolts of diverse notions of human rights, the role of stakeholders, including the State and Non-State Actors, in recognizing, promoting, and protecting human rights in Bangladesh and beyond.
