Moving Beyond Boundaries in the Pursuit of Sustainable Property Law
I have recently posted a chapter on SSRN entitled “Moving Beyond Boundaries in the Pursuit of Sustainable Property Law”. This chapter is forthcoming in the volume Bram Akkermans and Gijs van Dijck (eds), Private Law and Sustainability (2019). In this chapter, I consider the reform of private water rights in the context of sustainability. I explore the interactions between three different policy spheres which relate to the reform of private water rights – each representing a pillar of sustainable development – in the particular context of small-scale hydro-schemes in Scotland. I argue that this micro-analysis has macro-implications, and that this case study shows that we must move beyond multiple boundaries in reforming our property laws in order to contribute to the transition to sustainability. Take a look!
