Webinar: Is the expropriation bill an effective tool for transformation?

On 9 October 2020, the Government of South Africa gazetted a draft Expropriation Bill. Various interest groups challenged the publication of the Bill based on various concerns including inadequate public participation and failure to provide the relationship between this process and the ongoing process of amending Section 25 of the Constitution. The Bill was not enacted and an invitation was extended for public comment by 10 of February 2021, and a further extension to 28 February 2021. The Bill will now be debated and voted for in the National Assembly, and then the National Council of Provinces. The final step will be its ratification by the President.

The PLAAS webinar will explore the significance of the Expropriation Bill and the changes that should be made to the Bill to ensure equitable access to land.

Tune in on Thursday 4 March 2021 from 13:00 – 14:00.
