interdisciplinary journal dedicated to exploring the core principle

that a just and accessible property law system is the basis for both

good citizenship and successful socio-legal development. The Journal

is primarily concerned with matters of property as they relate to the

human process of exchange, the fostering of democratic institutions,

the building of sustainable communities, the stewardship of the

global environment and its natural resources, the promotion of

citizenship, and the development of market institutions that respond

to and promote a worthy social mission. Our approach to socio-legal

development is therefore from the perspective of social

entrepreneurism rather than wealth maximization.


Our goal is to explore the legal infrastructure of property in broad

terms: encompassing concerns for real, personal, intangible, and

intellectual property, as well as looking at property related

financial markets (including real estate mortgages, personal

property, security interests, licensing, and securitization).


Making reference to specific examples of property (in its various

forms) we will address the following types of issues.


1) To what extent do property rights reduce or eliminate the need for

government regulation (particularly command and control-regulation)

while enhancing the environment for open market approaches to

economic development and globalization? This includes consideration

of the way in which property rights actually reduce transaction

costs, correct for problems raised by the tragedy of the commons, and

organize society in a way that fosters efficient economic development.


2) What is the role of privatization of State controlled property in

the transformation process? How should privatization be approached

and what distinctions need to be made between public, private, and

state property? This includes discussion of necessary support

infrastructure for successful privatization, and consideration of the

need for government control over private companies dealing with

public utilities, natural resources, and transportation systems.


3) To what extent do property rights enhance citizenship and advance

democratic institutions? What role does private property play in

creating political elites and the structures needed for controlled

development and social transformation? How can property rights be

used to make the rule of law more tangible, and to promote civic

participation and inclusion? How are property rights related to

citizenship issues respecting matters of race, gender, ethnicity,

urban or rural location, and other factors?


4) To what extent do property rights promote entrepreneurism,

including social entrepreneurism focusing on values other than mere

maximization of economic wealth and efficiency? How can property

rights fuel economic development while helping to reduce poverty?


5) In a world of global financial institutions such as the European

Development Bank, The World Bank, and the IMF, with the power to

influence indirect or quasi-law making, how are global property law

systems to develop and become institutionalized? How do these

institutions facilitate problems related to globalization and

harmonization, and what are the socio-legal implications from such
