Reviews

“The book as is offers a never-before-seen set of case studies that ties together displacement-related experiences and policies from the Global North and the South. I think that the editors have done a marvelous job. … this book could be used as a supplementary text for a variety of courses in the fields of geography and urban studies. It is truly a valuable ‘handbook’ of displacement for many fields of study.” (Aysegul Can, Journal of Urban Affairs, August 17, 2021)
