The Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies (BIPSS) conducts research and study on Bangladeshi and South Asian conflict and security issues.
It works to include traditional and non-traditional security issues in its analyses, aiming to strengthen regional perspectives towards human security on the basis of democracy as a conflict prevention tool.
It also provides assistance to the defence and security sector to support the development of a national consensus on circumventing conflict.
The Institute aims to bridge the gap between academic research and policy analysis in Bangladesh, building a cohort of scholars, analysts and policy makers.
The Bangladesh Centre for Terrorism Research and Bangladesh Centre for China Studies, focusing on terrorism and China, are two key projects. The Institute also collaborates with the American Security Project, the Atlantic Council, the National Democratic Institute and the Institute of Regional Studies.
