But what of those intentionally relocated in the name of development? Contributors here choose a specific frame to provide some answers: the gendered discourse, practice and consequences of development induced migration, resettlement and rehabilitation in India. Few other countries have had so many displaced by development: minimally 21 million people due to large scale infrastructure and industrial projects alone. Already the focus of activist effort and research a generation ago, for no other locale is there a richer body of relevant research or a tighter wedding of research to activism. Lyla Mehta and ten of her contributors are scholar-activists. As Mehta (p. xxvi) notes, their well-grounded scholarly contributions constitute a ‘significant attempt to apply gender analysis to development-induced displacement and resettlement’. These are complemented by chapters by activists: Rebbapragada and Kalluri (Chapter 11) on tribal peoples http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Refugee Studies Oxford University Press
