    This special issue focuses on population displacement and resettlement in China and argues that many aspects of displacement and resettlement make China a unique case. From a wide variety of viewpoints, the contributors to this special issue provide readers with rich empirical evidence and insightful conceptual framework for understanding the causes, processes, and consequences of displacement and resettlement in China. Their contributions address varied types of displacement and resettlement, such as natural resource exploitation (e.g. dams and mining), urban renewal, and environmental protection, many of which have not received sufficient research attention. This special issue introduces the Chinese perspective to enrich the global discussion of population displacement and resettlement, opening up new possibilities for future research.
