In the United States, a doctrine known as the „eminent domain“ provides the legal basis for expropriation. U.S. courts have accepted the doctrine as a government power, indicating that it is implied by the Fifth Amendment`s compensation clause. In this explanatory statement, the declaration of the amendment implies that the property cannot be expropriated without adequate compensation, that the property can actually be taken. `Investments by nationals or companies of a Party may not be nationalised, expropriated or subject to measures having equivalent effect to nationalisation or expropriation (`the expropriation provision in the British ILO model (2008`): However, the language used in contracts often provides little explicit indication of what is concretely interpreted as expropriation. As a result, many investment agreement arbitration tribunals have considered the definition of the limits of what constitutes a „levy“ of ownership and the minimum requirements for what constitutes „appropriate“ compensation. Another main legislation for the expropriated is public health. It is generally accepted that events that threaten public health, such as toxic environmental contamination of an area. B justify the government acting to relocate the affected population to the area, and part of this measure may logically lead the government to expropriate the property of displaced residents. State expropriations are widespread around the world, usually accompanied by the agreement that owners should receive adequate compensation for the property they lose. The few exceptions to the fair compensation agreement are mainly in communist or socialist countries, where a government can expropriate not only land, but also domestic or foreign companies present in the country.
Expropriation raises legitimate concerns, ranging from acceptable grounds for expropriation to the appeal process, the amount and amount of fair compensation. With regard to compensation, there is a discussion about what constitutes fair compensation for the owners of expropriated property. In cases that span five decades, from the 1930s to the 1980s, the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that the definition of „fair market value“ is lower than what sellers can demand and possibly obtain in voluntary transactions. One of the most important protective measures provided by almost all bilateral investment agreements (NTAs) and multilateral investment agreements (MTAs) is protection against expropriation (or nationalization) without adequate compensation. 1.5 Does the government maintain a policy of timely, fair and effective compensation for expropriations that is also consistent with its international obligations? What are the explicit and clearly defined limits of the government`s ability to expropriate? What independent channels exist to verify or challenge the exercise of this power? Among the most important issues for the PFI user in the evaluation of a country`s expropriation laws and verification processes are: assessing the clarity and transparency of expropriation laws and modalities with regard to their ability to compensate in a timely, appropriate and effective manner, their compliance with international standards and verifying the existence of independent channels for verifying or challenging decisions. expropriation. . . .
