    File 40711Young Journalist Media Fellowship 2018

    Background

    The potential of the youth remains untapped due to the lack of a holistic planning and budgeting of resources to address quality of education, technical and vocational training programmes that facilitate economic opportunities and livelihoods. Available economic and entrepreneurship opportunities fall short in reaching the most vulnerable, especially young women and men.

    Young people especially young women living in poverty, due to prevailing patriarchal and hierarchical sociocultural norms, are excluded from spaces of political influence and power. These invisible forces are coupled with a lack of access to resources  thus excluding young people from voicing their demands in development processes.

    Driven by the country's current context and demographic opportunity, ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) has prioritised social, economic and political empowerment of young people through its programmatic areas. Action for impact (A4I) project at AAB focuses on  facilitattion of youth-led social transformation in the delivery of quality public services (i.e. health and education), skill development opportunities and decent work initiatives. Thematic areas for A4I are :

    • Economic opportunities and decent work
    • Gender and youth responsive public services
    • Youth representation and social cohesion

    Simultaneously, in order to influence policy decisions and strengthen media advocacy on grassroots issues, AAB is inviting for applications from passionate young journalists for the ‘ActionAid Young Journalist Media Fellowship 2018’ to initiate and support investigative journalism on the thematic areas of Action for Impact(A4I) project.

    Five winning applications from the journalists will be selected for this fellowship.

    1. Background

    Bangladesh has recently attained the status of a middle-income country. This, coupled with the country’s commitment to fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the need for domestic resource mobilization to fuel the economic growth is a priority. The trend in national revenue generation is almost entirely driven by NBR’s tax collection. One of Bangladesh government’s typical support is the provision of tax incentives (TI) which are growing by numbers and scope. As evident from an ActionAid Bangladesh study undertaken in 2015 Bangladesh offers more than hundred types of tax incentives. Generally, tax incentives are offered to attract more national and foreign investments, thus generating employment. However, a study titled “An In-depth Study on Tax Incentives in Bangladesh” commissioned by ActionAid Bangladesh in 2015 found that tax incentives appear to be the fifth-most important factor in driving investments in Bangladesh – preceded by Bangladesh’s sustained GDP Growth Rate, relatively low employee wages, inflation, and cost of capital/loans. The survey on private sector also yielded the finding that tax incentives have little relation with economic well-being of poor and female citizens or employees. The study further concluded that- although most of the export earnings of Bangladesh are contributed by apparels export and products of export processing zones (EPZ), and both sectors enjoy relaxed fiscal terms and a friendly investment climate; effect of tax incentives throughout the economy is unclear.

    The current scenario demands for analyzing the effectiveness of tax incentive and its impact for generating employment. ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) has been advocating and campaigning for progressive tax policies over the last few years. In the long-run, AAB is rolling out the global tax power campaign in Bangladesh to increase government accountability through revenue enhancement and budget decentralization. While there is increasing academic and policy literature about tax policy and tax economics, lack of in-depth knowledge persists to map the benefits and effectiveness of Bangladesh’s tax incentive regime. In order to make AAB tax advocacy more informed and strategic, in-depth knowledge is required about uses-abuses of tax incentives and their implications for generating employment.
