This symposium aims to explore the relationship between public and private notions of property across a number of areas of legal research, in order to better understand the meaning of property in those contexts. It seeks to develop our understanding of the co-existence of distinct concepts of property in public and private law through both doctrinal and theoretical perspectives on the issue.
