What about the “Stayers”? Examining China’s Resettlement Induced by Large Reservoir Projects

Peer-reviewed publication
Février, 2021

Large reservoir projects typically occupy vast lots of rural land and trigger resettlement on a massive scale. In China’s reservoir context, increasing concerns have arisen regarding distant-resettlees (those who are resettled outside the reservoir area), while fewer studies have examined the nearby-resettlees (those who are resettled near the original area) and the non-movers (those who do not resettle).
