DescriptionMember editorial board: Elgar Land and Housing Law and Policy series
Land and housing law and policy are currently undergoing upheavals which will certainly shake and reshuffle their fundamentals. Overpopulation, mass migration, climate change and other environmental disasters, the increasing scarcity of agricultural and urban land, as well as the social, economic and political problems resulting thereof, put under pressure land tenure and overshadow more technical but nevertheless persisting problems such as incompatibilities of conveyancing, registration and tenancy systems. Housing systems are additionally challenged by excessive shortages in urban areas, lack of public budgets, privatisation and restitution problems as well as, in many States, counterproductive tax, subsidy and tenancy regulation. Against this background, the new Elgar Land and Housing Law and Policy series sets out to analyse legal regulation in its political, economic, social and environmental context. Its focus is, thus, on the governance dimension of modern law and regulation.
