‘Compensation and resettlement policies after compulsory land acquisition for hydropower development in Vietnam: policy and practice’

In this new article published last week in open access journal Land, the authors analyse differences between policies and practices regarding state-led land acquisitions. By studying the case of a dam-related resettlement project near Hue city in Central Vietnam, the authors address the question of how the process of compulsory land acquisition for hydropower dam construction can be described and understood with the aim to formulate implications for improved policies. The article can be accessed here.
