Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialantropologi

Sammanfattning: The Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) of Bangladesh was for a long time an area of conjuration, affection, brotherhood, social and natural contribution in livelihood as well as harmony between nature and culture. At present, eight hundred thousand indigenous peoples in CHT are living in poverty, hunger, malnutrition, killings, conflicts, and imbalanced situation in society and economy. Different development programs in different times has demolished the indigenous peoples way of life. The Peace Accord of 1997 singed between the Government of Bangladesh and the local political party PCJSS in CHT aimed at establishing rights of indigenous peoples including rights to language, culture, economic and environmental development. However, after more than two decades since the signing of the Peace Accord, peace in CHT is far from implemented. However, both using qualitative and quantative data from primary and secondary sources, the vulnerable socio-economic situation of the indigenous peoples of CHT has been analyzed. Instead of peace, deprivation and hunger as well as human rights violation are still prevalent in the CHT.
