This chapter offers an historical overview of the governance challenges of contemporary Bangladesh. It does so through an examination of the social, cultural and institutional underpinnings of governance. This allows for an framework that anchors governance analysis in context and in reality, thus overcoming the temptation to embrace overly normative and abstract analyses. Particular attention is given to the ongoing significance of the Bengali versus Bangladesh narratives that are have been central to political debate and mobilisation throughout Bangladesh.
