Ms. Yan will talk about the development of eminent domain procedures on state-owned land in China over the decades in her presentation. The Regulation on the Expropriation of Buildings on State-owned Land and Compensation of 2011 provides a more specific procedural framework for exercising the power of eminent domain, compared with the old regulations. Based on the analysis of how the Regulation has redistributed the legal rights and obligations of all players in the process of making an eminent domain decision, including administrative departments, developers and property owners, the presentation will also offer a perspective to see how the balance of power between them has changed in China for decades, as well as the emphasis on the functions of procedural law. Ms. Yan will also take a brief look at the urban redevelopment policies in the United States to discuss what can be learned.
