Since its independence, Bangladesh armed forces have played a pivotal role in the international stage. Participation in UN Peacekeeping operations further expanded our defence diplomacy agenda. General Muniruzzaman in his article looks at the different facets of defence diplomacy and how it can act as a force multiplier in statecraft.

In spite of the pandemic, the two institutes have collaborated throughout 2020 publishing joint commentaries and journal articles, hosting joint webinars, etc.
