Asia-Pacific Centre for Complex Real Property Rights
Why ‘complex’ real property rights?
We acknowledge both the legal and economic schools of thought on property rights, but realise that the multiple interests, factors, stakeholders, and relationships in many property rights situations are often too complex to be resolved by one discipline in isolation. Instead, we offer a truly transdisciplinary approach to addressing complex real property rights. We achieve this by developing productive relationships investigating property rights at the interface of law, land and the political economy, urban planning, human geography and sociology. These dynamic relationships continually force a team of discipline specialists to think outside of the box, beyond their comfort zones, to deconstruct debate and tackle contemporary property rights conundrums.
