The legal data collected for Nicholas Tagliarino's dissertation and posted on Land Book examines whether national expropriation, compensation, and resettlement laws in developing countries are adopting international standards designed to secure tenure rights and ensure responsible land governance. The analysis conducted for this dataset is based on Section 16 of the UN Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure, which establishes standards on expropriation, compensation, and resettlement. The data published on Land Portal will be analyzed in a series of forthcoming papers, which together make up his dissertation. For more information on this research project, see the World Resources Institute working paper: Encroaching on Land and Livelihoods: How National Laws Measure Up Against International Standards. Nicholas joined the Land Portal in September 2016 as a Research Analyst. Currently, he is also pursuing a PhD at the University of Groningen Faculty of Law (the Netherlands).

The World Bank’s Land Governance Assessment Framework found that, in Nigeria, “a large number of acquisitions occurs without prompt and adequate compensation, thus leaving those losing land worse off, with no mechanism for independent appeal even though the land is often not utilized for a public purpose”.
