Accumulation and Alienation: State of Labour in Bangladesh 2013
 
     
  The State of Labour in Bangladesh, 2013, first of its kind in the country, reveals a parallel process of economic growth driven by, and associated dispossession of, labour. Despite labour remaining in the heart of such development, labourers are dispossessed by a number of ways. Against this backdrop, the key question is: can this type of accumulation by dispossession enable the economy to a sustainable path required to create gainful employment, reduce poverty and shrink inequality?
The research evinces that the option for people to make choices and to claim rights to decent employment has remained elusive in the context of survival and hence has been subjected to injustices and dispossession.
