A very first for Bangladesh, this edited book examines the complex issues of development-induced displacement and resettlement using case studies with “good practice” examples from a wide range of ongoing projects. The authors, who are largely “practitioners” in the field of resettlement studies, are well-known in the country and internationally for their expert knowledge.
The book establishes a baseline for further research on resettlement and development in Bangladesh. It is rich in well-presented case studies replete with evidence-based strategies to help prevent impoverishment amongst those displaced by development projects. The chapters in this collection address emerging issues and approaches to resettlement and thus have enriched the literature in an era of rapid economic development and change. Thus, the book will remain as a valuable resource and reference or teaching aid in academic and development circles. (Novinka)
