DATE AND VENUE:
22nd – 23rd September, 2017, University of Essex, England
The UK, the US and other advanced democracies are currently experiencing a period of significant political turmoil and change. Property is imbricated in the heart of these challenges.
As such, the institution of private property is a primary site from which to examine the social production of resilience, as well as inequalities in access to the mechanisms that enable resilience, and new strategies to overcome the injustices that fuel the current political crises.
This workshop will explore what role Vulnerability Theory can play in understanding how property ownership has sharpened an insider-outsider culture and contributed to our current political climate.
Property laws, and the policies that they give effect to, have long channeled the benefits of full citizenship through one's relationship to property.
This workshop will explore the role of property law and property theory in supporting the production of resilience.
