Second WINIR Symposium
4-6 April 2016
University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
Property rights are a central institutional feature of all politico-economic systems where markets play a major role, and a key item of political controversy between liberal and socialist positions.
The role of property rights in matters ranging from interpersonal exchange and power to innovation and economic development is debated across several academic disciplines, including economics, history, law, philosophy, politics and sociology.
The growing importance of intellectual and other intangible property in modern capitalism has further provoked important ongoing theoretical and policy discussions, part of which revolve around the very meaning of property as opposed to possession.
Bringing together internationally leading institutional researchers from several disciplines, the WINIR Symposium on Property Rights, hosted by Bristol University’s Faculty of Social Sciences and Law, will address these and other related issues.
Submit abstracts by December 31.
