Abstract

Abstract Resettlement studies are in agreement that involuntary resettlement tears apart the existing social fabric where poor households can draw different forms of resources for survival or sustenance. Utilizing the social capital theory, the present study presents findings on the extent of how the structural and cognitive dimensions of social capital was disrupted by the displacement and how it was subsequently rebuilt amidst strangers in the new government resettlement sites a year later.
