At the 26th Conference for Political and Evolutionary Economics (EAEPE), the RECOLAND Project hosted a panel.
EAEPE Annual Conference-hosted seminar on:
FALLACIES OF EFFICIENCY AND SECURE PROPERTY RIGHTS:
INSTITUTIONAL CREDIBILITY AND FUNCTION
6-8 Nov 2014, University of Cyprus, Nicosis
The proposed seminar will bring together leading, international scholars as well as young students of development and institutional change. Each of the contributions will examine the applicability of institutional credibility and functionalism through the lens of three critical questions: 1) how does the current property rights structure facilitate development and what might be its function? 2) how do property rights deviate from neo-liberal postulates, i.e. institutions need to be secure, clear and private? 3) what are the institutional changes that have occurred around property rights, and are their any signs for future changes (are there changes in the level or type of distributional conflict)?
