Details

This book includes the conference proceedings of a conference in September 2019. The Institute for Property Law of the University of Leuven had the opportunity to welcome numerous authoritative legal scholars to debate on the impact of sustainability challenges on the crossroads between contract and property.

While environmental issues, and more broadly sustainability, are often conceived as a matter of public law, if a matter of law at all, in recent years, also private law aims to join in. More fundamentally, environmental law could challenge the main division in private law, the division between contract and property. Fundamental rules of traditional private law, with strong historical roots, such as the privity of contracts, the closed system of property rights, the praedial rule with regard to servitudes, etc. are under pressure.

The contributions of this book therefore are situated at the point of encounter of at least three fields of law: environment, contract and property. Very often, a fourth field of law joins this encounter: the constitutional protection of ownership plays a major role in the described challenges.

The contributions in this book are on the one hand, careful analyses of national laws, and on the other hand, more general views on the interplay between property law and sustainability:

About the series:

Property Law Series

Het goederenrecht heeft de voorbije jaren een ‘revival’ gekend. Van een oud, star rechtsdomein dat terugging op een agrarische traditie, is het goederenrecht uitgebouwd tot een moderne component van het vermogensrecht. Op die manier komt het goederenrecht uit zijn isolement, en komen de raakvlakken met het fiscaal recht, constitutioneel en administratief recht, huwelijksvermogensrecht, verbintenissenrecht, rechten van de mens, enz. centraal te staan. Ook de rechtsvergelijking vormt bij een diepgaande analyse een hoeksteen.

In dit perspectief wil de reeks “Property Law Series” diepgaande werken over het goederenrecht bundelen. Die diepgang vergt een gedegen analyse die zowel voor de begripsvorming als voor de juridische praktijk een grote bijdrage levert. Zowel Nederlandstalige als Engelstalige werken kunnen erin toegang krijgen.

De reeks staat onder redactie van Prof. Dr. V. Sagaert, Prof. Dr. A. Wylleman, Prof. Dr. N. Carette, Prof. Dr. S. Van Erp en Prof. Dr. A. Van der Walt.
