Over the past two decades, Bangladeshs remarkable economic growth and development has been constantly challenged by various non-traditional security NTS threats. Out of these NTS issues, Rohingya refugee crisis and environmental hazard are considered two major threats for the nation in which concerned governmental organizations and law enforcement agencies are overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the events. As a solution to this issue, the Government of Bangladesh has the option to employ the Army to assist civil administration in combating these two NTS threats. Bangladesh Army, in addition to their primary role to maintain countrys territorial integrity and national sovereignty, regularly performs its secondary role to aid the civil administration. However, the Army has very limited contributions in the fields of refugee control and environmental protection, most of which are not focused and organized. This thesis aims to identify new non-traditional roles for Bangladesh Army in the fields of environmental protection and refugee control to assist the civil administration.
