Jatiyo Adivasi Goltable Boithak Report
This is a report of a national conference on issues concerning the ethnic communities of Bangladesh. The report compiles information and reflections on Adivasi issues such as their identity question; constitutional recognition; civil, political and cultural rights; land rights; access to education; and customary rights over forest resources. The conference was a follow-up of a number of national events and research on Adivasi issues. Four organizations—Society for Environment and Human Development (SEHD), National Adivasi Roundtable Conference Committee (NARTCC) that was formed at the end of a SEHD seminar, London-based Minority Rights Group (MRG); and Bangladesh Indigenous and Hill Peoples' Association for Advancement (BIHPAA) jointly organized the national roundtable conference from 18 to 20 December 1997.
