Editorials and op-eds

My journalist profile at MR is regualrly updated https://muckrack.com/niaz-alam-1  

Between June 2013-2016, I was the Chief Editorial Writer at the Dhaka Tribune, a then new English language newspaper in Bangladesh. My main job there was writing leader columns for the editorial page, (ie; the anonymous, daily ‘official voices of the paper,’ )  Since then as a member of DT’s Editorial Board,  I continue to write occasional opinion columns for the Dhaka Tribune, which can be found via these links http://www.dhakatribune.com/author/niaz-alam/
