Comparing China and India

Displacement and Migration

Development-Induced Displacement in India and China: A Comparative Look at the Burdens of Growth edited by Florence Padovani, with a Foreword by Michael M Cernea, Lanham, Boulder,
New York, London: Lexington Books, 2016; pp 282, $95 (hardcover)
.

The edited volume under review tasks itself to “a comparative analysis of development-induced migration in India and China, with a particular focus on displacement [including planned resettlement] caused by urbanisation and dam construction.” In Development-Induced Displacement in India and China: A Comparative Look at the Burdens of Growth, Florence Padovani argues for

the importance of the book, inasmuch as, although “much has been written about China’s and India’s specific handling of problems arising from involuntary migration in their respective territories, so far there has been no academic work done from a comparative perspective” (p lviii).
