Transnational Issues in Bangladesh

Disputes – International

Bangladesh referred its maritime boundary claims with Burma and India to the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea. Prime Minister Singh's September 2011 visit to Bangladesh resulted in the signing of a Protocol to the 1974 Land Boundary Agreement between India and Bangladesh, which had called for the settlement of longstanding boundary disputes over non-demarcated areas and the exchange of territorial enclaves, but which had never been implemented. Bangladesh struggles to accommodate 29,000 Rohingya, Myanmar Muslim minority from Arakan State, living as refugees in Cox's Bazar. Myanmar border authorities are constructing a 200 km (124 mi) wire fence designed to deter illegal cross-border transit and tensions from the military build-up along border.

Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

In 2011, there were 229,644 refugees from Myanmar. The number of IDPs due to land conflicts and religious persecution is undetermined.

Illicit Drugs

Bangladesh is a transit country for illegal drugs produced in neighbouring countries.
