Development-Induced Displacement: The Case of Dam Construction in Slovakia and the Czech Republic

Natalia Zagorsekova () and Michaela Ciefova

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper deals with the topic of development-induced displacement based on Slovak and Czech historical experience with dam construction projects. Favourable natural conditions in the Central European area, such as hydropower potential and relief, have enabled many hydroelectric plants to be constructed, whereby no negligible number of cases have been accompanied by resettlement of the affected population. Such processes had significant social and economic consequences. In the present study we predominantly focus on the ways of compensation and treatment of the displaced, whereby comparative approach is applied. Besides, results of key informant interviews are debated in detail. The paper is concluded by policy recommendations regarding potential future development-induced displacement.
