On Common Ground: International Perspectives on Community Land Trusts

Line Algoed, John E. Davis, María E. Hernández-Torrales

Research output: Book/ReportBookSpecialist


On Common Ground: International Perspectives on the Community Land Trust explores the growth of the worldwide CLT movement. The book’s twenty-six original essays, contributed by forty-two scholars and practitioners from a dozen different countries, cover five general topics. BRIGHT IDEAS survey the conceptual and practical justifications for community-led development on com-munity-owned land. NATIONAL NETWORKS examine the proliferation and cross-pollination of CLTs in the Global North. REGIONAL SEEDBEDS explore the potential for CLT development in the Global South. URBAN APPLICATIONS showcase the success of selected CLTs in London, Brussels, Boston, Burlington, and Denver, a handful of highly productive CLTs that are providing affordable housing, spurring neighborhood revitalization, and securing land for urban agriculture. CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES reflect on the changing environment to which CLTs must adapt if they are to “go to scale,” while remaining accountable to the communities they serve.
