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 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;
  • categorising of the notions of public interest and public purpose;
  • justifiability of expropriation without compensation;
  • 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 realise the specific purpose;
  • whether the public interest could legitimately entail transfer of expropriated property to a party other than the state.
