Land sharing as an alternative to eviction: the Bangkok experience

S. Angel, S. Boonyabancha

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A unique approach to the resolution of slum eviction conflicts has evolved in Bangkok. Slum dwellers faced with imminent eviction have organised and bargained successfuly for a share of the land they currently occupy, and landlords - usually after protracted negotiations - have agreed to sell or lease them the land. The land sharing process is described and explained, using five recent projects as examples. The five basic requisites of land sharing are: community organisation, a land sharing agreement, densification, reconstruction and capital investment. -from Authors
