Edited by Antonio Azuela

Junho 2017, inglês

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

As a policy instrument, expropriation is often considered a last resource to meet public and social needs. This book, translated from the original Spanish edition, explores how five metropolitan areas in Latin America have used expropriation, shows the conflicts that it generates, and examines the way judges resolve (or fail to resolve) the dilemmas it poses.
