Tourism development induced displacement and resettlement (TDIDR) is an increasingly challenging phenomenon faced by the tourism industry, yet scholarship on the matter remains scarce. Impacts of TDIDR on resettlers are significant and vary in severity based on geopolitical contexts. The ubiquity of TDIDR, particularly within emerging economies such as China, indicates a need for further investigation. This case study, conducted in Louyang, China, contributes to tourism research by examining the various impacts of TDIDR on local (re)settlers. A cross-disciplinary review of extant research on impacts of development-induced resettlement is provided. Implications related to improving resettlers' wellbeing, ensuring equitable welfare distribution, and contributing to community empowerment are discussed.
