Dams and Displacement

Environmental Justice and Displacement from the Merowe Dam in Sudan, led by Mark Zeitoun with Asim al Moghraby, Mohammad Hashim Jalal, and Azza Dirar. The work explores the extent to which justice struggles by those displaced by the Merowe dam were supported or let down by international norms on water and development-induced displacement. Part of a two-phase research project on Rethinking Environment and Development in an Era of Global Norms: An Exploration of Forests and Water in Nepal, Sudan and Uganda, an ESRC-funded project led by Prof Thomas Sikor
