TURB 103 URBAN STUDIES IN PRACTICE - Dr. Anaid Yerena, Faculty School of Urban Studies, with Dr. Flavia de Avila and Dr. Ruben Casas,  “The Social Function of Property:  A Necessary Legal Principle”
WhenWednesday, Mar. 11, 2020, 12:30 – 1:25 p.m.
Description

The U.S. Constitution’s Fifth Amendment, as currently written, prevents the government from creating the type of public housing policies we need to fully address the current widespread housing affordability crisis. A part of this amendment, the Takings Clause, which limits the power of eminent domain, applies a restrictive definition of public use. This definition disregards the social function of property (SFP) as a rationale for the repurposing of property. SFP is a legal principle currently used in Brazil. The presenters will define SFP and describe how it is applied.
