Management of archives relating to population resettlement from the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze: a keystone for governance and development

Comma (2008), 2008, (1), 147–149.

Abstract

Population resettlement as a result of the Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River in China will affect around 1.35 million people. The archives associated with the resettlement project are hugely important: for recording the effects of the resettlement on the areas and populations concerned, for protecting the rights of the resettled population and allowing future generations to learn about their families, and to support government administrations in making evidence-based policy and decisions. Recognizing the importance of these archives, the state has put in place a variety of measures, including specific regulations, project monitoring and resources, to ensure that the archives are collected, organized and made accessible.
