1. Title: 'The Interaction Among Foreign Direct Investment, GDP Growth and Unemployment Rate in Emerging Economies Before and After the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Case Study on Bangladesh'

Mahbub, F.B., Shetu, J.F. and Khandker, L.L, (2022), ‘The Interaction Among Foreign Direct Investment, GDP Growth and Unemployment Rate in Emerging Economies Before and After the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Case Study on Bangladesh’, International Journal of Education, Business and Economics Research (IJEBER) 2 (6): 176-192. ISSN: 2583-3006

Abstract: This study examines Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, Net Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), and Unemployment growth and their relationships with each other; whether there’s a structural break for COVID-19; and how Bangladesh can use this information to ensure stable economic growth. Using a qualitative and quantitative approach, this paper uses time series analysis such as Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) test, Johansen cointegration test, and Granger Causality are used to determine the underlining interconnection and any causal relationship among variables. The Bai-Perron test was performed to identify structural breaks in the series for COVID-19. Long-run equilibrium relationships exist between FDI and GDP growth and between FDI and the unemployment rate. There is a unidirectional relationship between the unemployment rate and GDP and between FDI and the unemployment rate. A structural break exists in all the variables that manifest the extent of the pandemic’s effect. This study proposes several policy reforms too. Even though most recent research has focused on the impact of FDI on both developed and developing countries’ economies during COVID-19; very few studies have focused specifically on Bangladesh, drawing on the impact of FDI on GDP, economic growth, and employment during then by examining the relationship and identifying a structural break among the variables.

Shetu, J.F. and Ferdous, C.S., 2017. Glass ceiling for professional women: a study on Bangladesh. World, 7(2), pp.78-87.

Abstract: The  ‘glass  ceiling’  metaphor  is  used  to  describe  invisible barriers  (glass)  through  which  women  see  elite  positions  but cannot  reach  them  (ceiling).  The  scenario  poses  as  if  there is  not  sufficient  room  for  women  at  the  top  positions  like  a board  member,  authoritarian  bodies,  and  top  executive committees.  Under  such  circumstances,  whether  the  glass ceiling  exists  in  Bangladesh,  the  obstacles  the  professional women face because of their  gender,  the  kind  of  support  they need,  and  the  factors  that  assist  them  to  overcome  those: these  were  the  research  areas  of  this  study.  This  study gained  insight  by  interviewing  high  position  holder  female professionals  from  versatile  and  challenging  sectors.  The barriers  found  were  many:  stereotypical  undervaluation  of women,  child-care  challenges,  social  underestimation  and disobedience  due  to  professional  jealousy,  scarcity  of  family support  and  additional  work  efforts  due  to  gender.  Factors like  support  from  family  and  husband,  urge  for  a  separate identity,  self-determination,  educational  excellence  was found  to  assist  women  to  shatter  the  ceiling.  The  study provides  interesting  findings  that  can  be  rendered  useful  and essential.
