The Property, People, Power and Place stream welcomes papers on all aspects of law relating to land and the built environment. The stream acknowledges that definitions of property and property rights are often contested and that concepts of property are shaped by relationships and communities. Papers which explore the concepts of space, place and inclusivity are also welcome. It is anticipated that papers may focus on the following, as examples:

  • The emergence of new forms of land ownership, regulation, or planning systems

  • Potential tensions between different stakeholder groups in property discourses

  • The boundaries between public and private property relationships

  • Technology, design and/or environmental changes and the impact on space/place regulation

  • The relationship of property to individual or collective identity

Contributions that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries are particularly welcome
