More on our Guest

Dr. Atuahene is a visiting professor from the Illinois Institute of Technology's Chicago-Kent College of Law.

Professor Atuahene is a leader of the  Coalition to End Unconstitutional Tax Foreclosures whose research has been critical to making the case that the last decade of tax foreclosures in Detroit has been both unprecedented and illegal.

Professor Atuahene's expertise comes in part from her years of advocacy, including her work in South Africa where she served as a human rights investigator and filmed a documentary on South Africa's post-apartheid Land Restitution Program. The opportunity to speak with Professor Atuahene will help provide us with a lens into the way tax foreclosures function as part of a broader system of "Stategraft" through which states transfer property from residents to the state in violation of their own laws, and help us become better equipped to combat the problem of land re-appropriation in Detroit at its root. Read more about this issue in Dr. Atuahene's original article, coauthored with Timothy Hodge, titled "Stategraft."
