On Common Ground: International Perspectives on the Community Land Trust

John Emmeus Davis, Line Algoed and María Hernández-Torrales


This collection focuses on the growth and development of the Community Land Trust (CLT) movement internationally, bringing together perspectives from over forty scholars and practitioners from a dozen countries. The essays provide insight into how the CLT model has been adapted across local contexts, and the innovations that have come from this. The editors note the power of this growing global movement, writing, “what unites a global community of CLT practitioners and scholars is more important than what separates us. There is a shared commitment to reinvesting and repurposing real estate for the common good.” Read more in a brief book review from Research Director Thomas M. Hanna on our blog
