Comparative Property Rights (3508)

This course will examine how property rights (and in particular the rights to possess, use and exclude others from property) are allocated, protected and limited under different legal and economic systems. We will particularly focus on rights in natural resources and land. We will ask what implications regarding competing societal values and interests can be drawn from different property rights systems, and examine the role of law in shaping and giving expression to those values and interests.
