ABSTRACT
This paper offers a brief presentation of the resettlement conference entitled "Economics, Social Justice, and Ethics in Development-Caused Involuntary Migration" that took place in the Hague from October 4th to 8th, 2010, as part of the broader 15th Metropolis Conference. The focus of the paper is on the contents of this high-level scientific event as well as on the broader concerns animating the community of resettlement researchers, namely the problems of economics, ethics and social justice in involuntary resettlement processes. In this context, the trailblazing contributions of Professor Michael Cernea as well as his enthusiasm and constant encouragement for young researchers are singled out for special attention.
