Dolores Koenig’s research concerns development-caused forced displacement and resettlement in both rural and urban areas, with a focus on new infrastructure projects in West Africa and Asia. The project looks at the impacts of displacement upon the livelihoods and social milieux of those forced and move and how formal resettlement projects might serve to improve opportunities for the poor. Of special interest are the role of activists and non-governmental organizations and the importance of economic reconstruction.
