Can Compensation Prevent Impoverishment?: Reforming Resettlement Through Investment and Benefit-Sharing
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195687132 / 9780195687132; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This volume contributes significantly to the international public debate on development-caused displacement and resettlement. It rejects the long-held thesis that compensation is in itself enough to restore and improve the livelihoods disrupted by displacement. Instead, the authors of this volume, a group of the world’s best known resettlement scholars — sociologists, anthropologists, economists, ecologists and legal experts —recommend changing displacement policies, laws and practices, by adding investment financing and ex-post benefit-sharing to full compensation. This book comes at a time when those displaced are increasingly opposing impoverishment by forced displacement. Their voices, argue the authors, speak of basic needs and human rights, and must be heard. 026649
