Land Acquisition, Resettlement and Social Sustainability - Winter School
18 – 29 July 2016
A partnership between The University of Groningen, Community Insights Group, Intersocial, World Bank Group, Isctem and EnergyWorks.
This winter school (practical training course) promotes understanding about and develops skills in managing the social risks and impacts associated with the development of public and private investment projects (e.g. mines, dams, highways, industry parks, electricity transmission corridors, agricultural developments, etc.), and particularly issues related to land acquisition and resettlement. Research into the displacement of peoples required for large projects generally shows that they can be made worse-off, unless the process is properly planned and managed
This training course will be based on good international practices and standards, lessons learned on the ground and practical case studies, and will include a technical site visit to a resettlement site. The course will be delivered by some of the world’s leading social assessment and resettlement practitioners, specialists from international development institutions, as well as key academics from the University of Groningen, to provide capacity building in the practice of managing the social issues of investment projects focusing on land acquisition and resettlement.
It is targeted to an international audience of current and intending social performance and resettlement practitioners and people involved in the governance of projects from public and private institutions, and is also open to advanced students interested in the practical management of social issues associated with development.
