10 July 2018: Talk on Compulsory Development: The Ideal Model of Land Acquisition in India and China

Huang Yinghong
Sun Yat-sen University, China

Land acquisition in India and China since the late 1980s has been theorised into an ideal model, the compulsory development, which highlights the extremely active role of the state and its compulsory measures towards land acquisition in both countries for achieving the commitment of development. As a developmental state, either state in both cases acts as the land use planner, regulation maker in the land administration, as well as the major land developer and the monopolistic player in the land market, while at the same time it extracts high proportion of revenue from land development projects, which is realised through a compulsory land acquisition despite of the numerous flaws of the land acquisition institutions. The compulsory development as we term is a key feature in political economy of land acquisition in both countries. It provides an ideal model to penetrate through the dense fog of hybrid phenomena of land acquisition in these two largest developing societies, and to develop a systematic analysis towards land acquisition, or even development in both countries. As the beginning of this research, in this talk, we focus only on the theoretical model of this compulsory development, including its definition, characteristics, and the diverse variations.
