Working group 3 Orders of property: Requirements for Stability and Change

Program Working Group 3: Orders of property

Orders of property have undergone great changes in the past, and they are currently still in a state of flux. By means of comparative questions and analyses, working group 3 examines to what extent private, public and common property are currently shifting and whether new or hybrid forms of property are possibly emerging. Another part of the debate refers to the question whether new orders are emerging in which social spheres previously organized in the form of property are forming new arrangements of allocation and regulation beyond property. At the same time, the social causes and normative reasons for stability and change are in question. The working group aims to systematically shed light on the conditions of and the driving forces behind structural changes within orders of property.

The working group is interdisciplinary, consisting of sociology, religious studies, law, history, Chinese studies, and philosophy.
