In 2006, as a follow-up to the Concept, the Permanent Council de- cided to establish a National Focal Point (NFP) network consisting of NFPs in the participating States and a contact point in the OSCE Vienna Secre- tariat.6 The Secretariat’s CPC was tasked with managing the network, which includes regularly updating the list of NFPs, amalgamating data and central- ising requests from and between the network’s members, and issuing a quar- terly newsletter providing information on relevant activities undertaken by the OSCE as well as by other international or regional bodies that contribute to the network.

Several months later, Yunus met Anisuzzaman again. ‘Yunus, you really want to open a new branch of our bank, do you?’ ‘No, not at all. I just want to lend money to the poor.’ ‘Do you want to remain a professor?’ ‘ Well, teaching is the only thing I know how to do. It’s what I love.’ ‘ I am not pressuring you, I was only thinking out loud.’ He blew smoke up to the ceiling. ‘Otherwise, you could give up your job at the university and simply become an employee of our bank. Then it would be easy for me to make you my deputy. I could delegate any of my powers to you without anyone complaining.’ 143 After a while: ‘I will i nd a way, don’t you worry … What if on paper I do not make you responsible for the branch.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
