Policy Press

This chapter focuses upon community responses to dispossession and displacement as a result of (re)development. Having summarised varying definitions and approaches the chapter moves on to explore case studies from different international contexts. There have been powerful illustrations of community resistance to displacement as a result of the Narmada big dam project in India, for example, as well as illustrations of alternative approaches in other Indian contexts. Brazil has provided its own examples of community based alternatives, including those developed by displaced peoples, the Landless People’s Movement. And there have been illustrations of community based resistance to displacement/ social cleansing as a result of urban redevelopment processes in contemporary Britain.

Keywords:   Dispossession, Displacement, Social cleansing, Urban redevelopment, Community resistance, Landless People’s Movement, Narmada Dam, Focus E 15
