Bangladesh, being on the shore of the Bay of Bengal and holding a major stake in the maritime route passing through it, is a major state actor in the Southeast Asian region. Surrounded by major military powers with nuclear capability, Bangladesh has its own challenge in terms of military conflicts and terrorism. But at times, nations and organizations forget to listen to the voice of Bangladesh while talking about this region. Our goal is to let everyone know our minds and perspective.
Bangladesh Defense Journal is the pioneer and the only publication in the field of defense journalism in the country and has a broader perspective of the regional aspect of security and development. It was started in 2008 as a monthly publication. One of our biggest strength is our advisory and editorial board. The journal is popular among the military and security community within and around Bangladesh.
As a non-political journal we cover issues like Defence, National Security, Regional Security, Maritime Security, Strategic Moves, Geo-Politics, Terrorism, Insurgency etc.
We as a for-profit organization are not limited to publishing magazines only. We are capable to carry out various activities including research, surveys, round table seminar/dialogue, joint seminar, conferences, awareness programs, public hearing etc.
