Eminent domain, or expropriation, is the taking of private property to achieve a public purpose, such as new schools or public roads, which clearly demonstrate a public use. However, eminent domain has also been use to take and transfer private property to private developers, who argue that high-end residential units, restaurants, retail stores, and the like will create public benefits, including jobs and increased property values.
The goal of this conference is to critically examine the uses and consequences of eminent domain from a multi-disciplinary perspectives, to attempt to answer the question: “What are the economic, political, environmental, social, and cultural impacts of the use of eminent domain, particularly on cities trying to revitalize themselves?”
