The magnitude of population displacement and its consequences have placed the issues of reconstructing the livelihoods of those displaced on the world's development agenda. Addressing these issues from a novel perspective, 'Risks and Reconstruction' offers a comparative analysis of the two largest groups of the world's displaced populations: resettlers being uprooted by development programs and refugees fleeing military conflicts or natural calamities. The book explores the condition of being 'displaced, ' the risks of impoverishment and social disarticulation, the rights and entitlements of those uprooted, and most importantly, how these groups can reconstruct their livelihoods. It uses a common set of concepts, derived from the impoverishment risks and reconstruction model. The world's interest in forced resettlers and refugees has considerably increased in the last two decades. About 10 million people around the world are displaced and resettled every year by development programs. Many governments, responding to national and international concerns, have strengthened their policies and assistance programs in this area. In the book, scholars and practitioners report on new empirical research, ideas and development projects from many parts of the world, including China, India, Africa, Argentina, Colombia, Greece. Although this volume focuses on developing countries, experiences from developed countries are also discussed. 'Risks and Reconstruction' is an invaluable reference tool for policymakers, academics, development practitioners, nongovernmental organizations, aid and refugee agencies, and anyone interested in today's international development issues.
