3. January 2017
The Transforming Notion of Property in Transnational Business Regulation
Leiden: Brill 2016
In [this volume], editor Christine Godt generates fresh impetus for rethinking modern property theory. The book’s central theme is the transformation of property in response to societal changes brought about by internationalization, digitalization and new forms of collective action.
The contributions sketch a vision of modern property, which grew out of 18th and 19th century ideologies. It operates in the modern multilevel system, and is not confined to the nation state. It is conscious about the broad range of functionalities of the title holder with regard to managing international supply and distribution chains and modern rationalities of the capital market, and at the same time acknowledges the legitimate interests of third parties and modern forms of governance.
