The report reviews CMI's experience of technical assistance and institutional collaboration in Bangladesh, from its beginnings in the form of individual staff members working as experts in Pakistan in the late 1950s, to the formal institutional cooperation agreements between CMI and the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) since the late 1970s and until recently. The three BIDS-CMI collaboration agreements are examined in detail through their various stages of design, negotiation and implementation, providing a vivid illustration of the issues involved in institutional capacity building through research cooperation.
