_Some portion of Editorial_
In Bangladesh efforts towards understanding multiple dimensions of poverty, analyzing its nature, determining causes and looking for its solution is noticeable. In this regard Bangladesh is really setting examples. A life free from abject poverty and injustice is part of human rights. Although sincere efforts are seen in establishing this right, poverty alleviation is still an unrealized dream because of overpopulation, illiteracy, natural disasters, unequal distribution of wealth, gender discrimination, unscrupulous and imprudent use of natural resources and lack of suitable planning and coordination. Although violation of rights and injustice are the primary causes of poverty its causes and condition vary according to region, society and ethnic identity. That’s why it is urgent to analyze its multiple dimension and nature to build a society free from poverty and injustice. Again poverty alleviation requires evaluating the existing strategies and endeavours as well as determining their impact. Because new ideas and strategies will be born from it and for that research is necessary.
In Bangladesh poverty and development oriented research has not yet gained momentum. It is still at the theoretical stage. At the field level, research on the analysis of situation, determination of agenda, devising of plans and their implementation is nonexistent. In poverty alleviation and development measures strategies of uprooting poverty striking at its root is almost absent.
