Indigenous women and girls are the most vulnerable group in Bangladesh. They face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination due to their gender, ethnicity, language, religion, class and geographic location. According to Kapaeeng Foundation’s statistics, from January 2007 to September 2016, there have been at least 466 reported incidents of violence against indigenous women and girls in Bangladesh.

This report documents the extent of the military presence in the CHT, the ways in which the military exert political, economic and social influence, and the consequences this presence has on the human rights situation in the region. In a democratic country such as Bangladesh, de facto military control of a certain region in which no insurgency is prevalent and where there is no threat of conflict with neighboring countries should be a cause for great concern both for the Government of Bangladesh, the international donors providing development assistance to Bangladesh and the international agencies that have a mandate to address specific human rights situations.

Shapan Adnan & Ranajit Dastidar
This book deals with the forcible takeover of the lands of the indigenous peoples of the CHittagong Hill Tracts (CHT). Based on fieldwork research among both Pahari and Bengali groups, the book documents the bewildering variety of mechanisms used to grab Pahari lands in the CHT, inclusive of illegal violence and intimidation. It also puts forward a wide range of policy measures to reduce land grabbing and ethnic tension. These policies are addressed to Pahari organizations as well as progressive sections of the government, mainstream Bengali society, donor agencies, the media, public interest organizations, the NGO sector, advocacy groups and others at home and abroad.

This book reveals that the majority of South East Asian countries already have plural legal systems and to some extent custom is recognized as a source of rights in the constitutions and laws of a number of them. National and international courts have affirmed indigenous peoples' customary rights in land. And all these countries have endorsed and ratified key international laws and treaties. Thus the basis for securing indigenous peoples' rights through a revalidation of customary law exists.

Chittagong Hill Tracts Commission
From 1991 to 2000 the Chittagong Hill Tracts Commission produced four reports on the situation in the Chittagong Hill Tracts titled “Life is not Ours: Land and Human Rights in the Chittagong Hill Tracts”. All four reports document gross human rights violations in the Chittagong Hill Tracts and the last update also analyses the situation after a peace accord was signed in 1997 between the Government of Bangladesh and the indigenous political party PCJSS.
