Bangladesh: Is NGO BRAC a parallel state?

In this edition we go behind the scenes of the world's largest NGO. The Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee, or BRAC, was set up in 1972. Now it has offices in a dozen countries, working on everything from tackling poverty to empowering women, while also providing health and banking services. But as Surabhi Tandon reports, questions have been raised about the way BRAC operates, blurring the lines between "classic" NGOs and corporations.
