The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary Issues in Expropriation takes a thematic look at expropriation (eminent domain/compulsory purchase) in an international context.
Expropriation is a right reserved to all governments and, thus, it has an impact on all societies. This book, the first of its kind, considers the essential issues from the point of view of both developing and developed countries. Each section will cover the major issues, principles and policies surrounding a particular theme and also include the experiences of and examples from different countries and regions including China, India, Nigeria, South East Asia, Northern Europe and the USA. Whilst the book remains international, it provides an overview of the key issues rather than an in depth examination of individual countries’ legal systems.
Key themes include:
- Large scale land acquisitions
- Acquisition of traditional land rights
- Betterment and blight
- Alternatives to expropriation
- The future: "good practice", debate and reform
This handbook is an essential resource for students and researchers in the areas of land law, planning law, property law and rights, urban studies and international development.
