This research project explores the role of landless people in collective resistance to Mining-Induced Displacement and Resettlement (MIDR)caused by the Phulbari Coal Mining project (Bangladesh). It explores the relationship between landlessness, forced displacement, exclusion, and collective resistance to fill a gap in MIDR scholarship, which has almost exclusively paid attention to effects of MIDR on people with formal land-rights.
