Rethinking Expropriation Law I

Public Interest in Expropriation

Edited by: B. Hoops, E.J. Marais, H. Mostert, J.A.M.A. Sluysmans, L.C.A. Verstappen

This book is the first of a series in which experts engage critically with identified aspects of expropriation law. The internationally diverse group of contributing authors offer valuable insight into the treatment of public purpose/interest related issues as they are canvassed in jurisdictions around the world. Some of these issues include: the public purpose/interest requirement and the definition of the object of expropriation ** the role of public purpose/interest in distinguishing between expropriation and regulation of property ** public interest and the classification of expropriatory actions as administrative, statutory, or constructive ** the categorizing of the notions of public interest and public purpose ** the justifiability of expropriation without compensation ** the consequences of a change in purpose after expropriation has been effected ** whether an expropriation can be challenged on the basis that less invasive means were available for the state to realize the specific purpose ** whether the public interest could legitimately entail transfer of expropriated property to a party other than the state. *** Librarians: ebook available (Series: Property, Environment & Law / Vastgoed, Omgeving & Recht - Vol. 6) [Subject: Expropriation Law, Property Law, Comparative Law]
