Book Talk | Owning the City: Property Rights in Authoritarian Regimes
Competition between democratic and authoritarian systems is playing out in global cities, where real property rights influence regime legitimacy and economic performance. In this book talk, George F. Kennan Fellow Marsha McGraw Olive will present the analysis of her new book, Owning the City: Property Rights in Authoritarian Regimes. She will argue that globally successful cities achieve better outcomes by respecting property rights and putting citizens at the center of urban planning. Case studies of Moscow and Istanbul present a cautionary tale for Presidents Putin and Erdogan, whose manipulation of property rights, once fundamental to regime support, are a growing source of vulnerability.
