Expert roundtable on displacement caused by development
August 2017

IDMC convened and hosted an expert roundtable meeting at the end of 2016 with 13 senior scholars and experts on displacement associated with development to seek strategic guidance and support for its work on the issue. 

Drawn from the United Nations, civil society, academia and the development finance community in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, they discussed the available data on people displaced by development work, the human impacts and problems arising from such displacement and subsequent resettlement, and ways of voicing and addressing issues and challenges, including via collaborative work.

This report summarises participants’ general views and presents a selection of points raised on monitoring and data collection, human impacts and influencing policy, as well as actions that IDMC will pursue in its work on displacement caused by development.
