IDRC sponsored International conference
International conference on Development-induced Displacement and Migration, Land Acquisition and Resettlement held at CDS, Thiruvananthapuram during 3-4, March 2016. The aim of the conference was to provide a platform to academics, development practitioners and research scholars studying development-induced displacement to critically discuss, reflect and disseminate research on various topics on or related to the theme. In various contexts and across regions, development projects have displaced urban, rural, indigenous and tribal populations from their lands without effectively addressing the adverse impacts to their livelihood. This seminar was also organized to disseminate the findings of the ongoing IDRC project on Involuntary Resettlement: A Cross-country Study on Urban Inequality and Poverty.
