Search for new Frontiers

Editor: Hossain Zillur Rahman and S. Aminul Islam

New Frontiers Of Empowerment

Editor: Hossain Zillur Rahman and A.M.M Nasiruddin
Year: January 2017

This publication was a mixed-method assessment of the Property Rights Initiative project of BRAC to examine this very issue. The PPRC team lead by PPRC Chairman Hossain Zillur Rahman and Senior Fellow, A.M.M Nasiruddin conducted research that explored the role of land rights as a barrier to achieving empowerment.
