Mining-induced Displacement and Resettlement: A Critical Appraisal

This article provides a critical appraisal of current thinking and practice on mining-induced displacement and resettlement (MIDR). The article identifies five critical and distinguishing factors associated with MIDR and explores them in light of contemporary policy debates surrounding the mining industry, including 'consent', 'negotiated agreements' and overall effectiveness of existing social safeguards in regulating industry practice.
