The Economics of Involuntary Resettlement: Questions and Challenges

Descripción del documento: 
Every important advance in development work yields lessons that point to new directions, fostering a dialogue between practice and research that encourages creative re-examination of past approaches. This volume is the product of such a dialogue on the complicated issue of involuntary population resettlement. It calls for overcoming an insular social perspective on resettlement and for building an "alliance" between economic and sociological research about resettlement. It examines the economic tools for planning resettlement and searches for ways to refine them.
