Most development projects, at face value, seem aimed at improving the lives of people. The reality for communities living at or near a project -- be it a dam, a sports complex, or a shopping mall -- is often quite different. Forced evictions regularly do not uphold obligations to fairly consult, compensate, resettle and rehabilitate communities. An estimated 15 million people are affected each year. People Before Profit attempts to tell the story of the more universal human experience before, during and after an eviction as well as the positive ways communities are responding and, in fact, being pro-active towards securing and protecting their human rights.
