Dr. Dawn Jourdan wanted to share with us news of the 2018 Property Land Property Rights conference she recently attended in Novi Sad, Serbia. She is pictured with Dr. Dušan Nikolić, Rector, University of Novi Sad at the recent International Planning, Law and Property Rights Conference hosted at Novi Sad University located in Novi Sad, Serbia. We are especially delighted to announce that the 13th annual conference of PLPR will be kindly hosted by her at Texas A&M University at College Station, Texas, USA! The conference will take place February 18-23 2019 under the theme “Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City”. Information will follow this summer.
The International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights handles Planning matters. Law matters. Property matters. These three simple messages inspire the growing PLPR community to examine the difficult relationship between public and private interests in the use of land.
The Academic Association’s functions include
To serve as an academic peer group for research in the field. Usually, faculty members in planning schools who do research in this area lack a large enough peer group with whom to discuss their research and obtain useful comments. The association convene together the people in the various countries who do research on the relationship between planning and law, thus creating a good-size peer group so necessary for any good academic exchange.
To promote research with a cross-national comparative perspective so as to enable exchange of knowledge that is so lacking in the current state of research.
To exchange approaches and methods in the teaching of planning law to planning students so as to improve this essential area.
To support young academics researching in the fields of planning, law, and property rights
