For decades, policy-makers in government, development banks and foundations, NGOs, researchers and students have struggled with the problem of how to protect people who are displaced from their homes and livelihoods by development projects. This book addresses these concerns and explores how debates often become deadlocked between 'managerial' and 'movementist' perspectives. Using development ethics to determine the rights and responsibilities of various stakeholders, the authors find that displaced people must be empowered so as to share equitably in benefits rather than being victimized. They propose a governance model for development projects that would transform conflict over displacement into a more manageable collective bargaining process and would empower displaced people to achieve equitable results. Their book will be valuable for readers in a wide range of fields including ethics, development studies, politics and international relations as well as policy making, project management and community development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...It is without doubt that this book offers an excellent presentation on the background of the issue of displacement by development.... Students and researchers will find this book as an essential reading material on the issue of displacement by development. As this book is the result of two research projects by the authors, they base their arguments on a plethora of sources from social sciences, humanities, law to economics, indicating their wealth of knowledge on the topic. The bibliography list alone is impressive and the book stands as an indispensable resource on this issue." --Masa Kovic-Dine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS)
