The event is timely and important with excellent speakers. However! No one is scheduled to speak about the opposition in Bangladesh. I would guess there is a story why that is so. I will be watching. I recommend the same for followers of Opposition International.

The organizers are bang on about the focus being on the actions of incumbent governments. They act in anticipation and response to the Opposition. The broader and more insightful focus would be on the Government-Opposition interaction. Democratic backsliding is not just a random bad habit. It is a deliberate strategy to thwart the opposition.
