The Peace Accord of 1997 singed between the Government of Bangladesh and the local political party PCJSS in CHT aimed at establishing rights of indigenous peoples including rights to language, culture, economic and environmental development. However, after more than two decades since the signing of the Peace Accord, peace in CHT is far from implemented.

Instead of peace, deprivation and hunger as well as human rights violation are still prevalent in the CHT. (Less)
