Sustainable Futures is a specially organized collection of critical debates, analyses and evaluations of changing models of property as the vehicle governing access to land and resources. These trends are explored in the context of current moves across many countries to privatize communal land holdings, and the collection comprises international analyses in conjunction with case studies - each of which explores an aspect of the broader themes of property, privatization, and sustainable communities - drawn from Australia, North America, South Africa, New Zealand, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Pacific region.Recognising that social and cultural factors need to be taken into account in resolving conflicts about land and resources, this volume throws into sharp relief how questions of land and resources management cannot be separated from wider issues about the long-term viability of communities and their environments.
In its assessment of the effectiveness of property law and other legal models for achieving long-term environmental and economic sustainability, this volume thus explores and compares changing conceptions of property law as they impact on management and resources law, policy reforms, and indigenous communal, or customary title.
