Distinguished Professor Ali Riaz has lectured and published commentary in media venues across Bangladesh this summer. Riaz published “Counter-Terrorism Strategy: An Alternative Proposal” on July 1 in the Daily Star. He was also quoted this month in the report in German Radio DW about why Bangladesh can’t afford to be complacent in the face of declining terror attacks.
Riaz presented at the University of Dhaka on July 6. The lecture was titled “Future Trends of Politics in Bangladesh” and was organized by the Reading Club Trust and Gyantapas Abdur Razzaq Foundation. The event attracted an unprecedented attendance by a younger audience and was widely covered by Bangladeshi and Bengali news outlets, such as Daily Star, New Age, Financial Express, Prothom Alo, and Samakal.
