Chapter 9: Implications for conceptions of management and planning: beyond a private and common property contradiction
Open access

Previous chapters have discussed binary conceptions of nature and examples that transgress them, as well as the possibilities for understanding and continuing land-use culture. This chapter illustrates the global context of land rights today, with earlier demarcations which have largely centred on determining the role of the types of ownership, such as private or common property, made complex by global systems and resource networks, and not least by the difficulties involved in regulating them. The chapter thereby adds to the previous chapter by problematising not only access to land-use culture but also the often nested - up to the global level - interests and power structures, and the assumptions for planning that are involved in land rights today.
