Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Contemporary Issues in Expropriation reviews the contemporary major issues involving 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, and their needs for major infrastructure projects. The content covers major issues, principles and policies and includes the experiences of and examples from different countries and regions, including Australia, Asia, China, Europe, India and the USA. Rather than providing an in-depth examination of individual countries? legal systems, the book focuses on international issues, and also provides a reflection on how national experiences can be related to global needs.

Key themes include:

  • Nature and quantum of compensation

    ? Land rights and the acquisition of traditional land rights

    ? Issues surrounding ?public interest?

    ?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 policy, land law, property law and rights, and international development.
