Organised by:
Institute of Chinese Studies

Abstract:
The problems of land development in India and China can be partly ascribed to the hegemony of compulsory land acquisition by the state over other approaches. The latter has been marginalized and deprived of adequate attention for their potentials to provide alternatives to the dominant LA model. In this article, a matrix formulated by two dimensions, participation and benefit-sharing, is developed and applied to categorize both the dominant practice and the sporadic experiments. It holds that the paradigm of land acquisition as the prevailing model for land development should be broken. Various development models are applicable under thoughtful examination of the purposes, the profitability of projects and the local social capitals. Multiple land development approaches do exist in both countries, but legal support and more flexible land development framework should be created and sustained for more inclusive development in either countries.
