Displacements in the Asia Pacific region are escalating. The region has for decades experienced more than half of the worlda€™s natural disasters and, in recent years, a disproportionately high share of extreme weather-related disasters, which displaced 19 million people in 2013 alone. This volume offers an innovative and thought-provoking Asia-Pacific perspective on an intensifying global problem: the forced displacement of people from their land, homes, and livelihoods due to development, disasters and environmental change. This book draws together theoretical and multidisciplinary perspectives with diverse case studies from around the region a€“ including Chinaa€™s Three Gorges Reservoir, Japana€™s Fukushima disaster, and the Pacifica€™s Banaba resettlement. Focusing on responses to displacement in the context of power asymmetries and questions of the public interest, the book highlights shared experiences of displacement, seeking new approaches and solutions that have potential global application. This book shows how displaced peoples respond to interlinked impacts that unravel their social fabric and productive bases, whether through sporadic protest, organised campaigns, empowered mobility or; even community-based negotiation of resettlement solutions. . The volume will be of great interest to researchers and postgraduate students in development studies, environmental and climate change studies, anthropology, sociology, human geography, international law and human rights.... a fuel for war The Broken Rifle 77.1 ( Padel F 2011 Mining projects and cultural genocide: colonial ... of a waterfall: Poscoa#39;s designs on Khandadhara Ejolt October ( posco ...
