Date(s) of Conference:
May 26-28, 2011
University of Alberta
The conference brings together scholars from around the world to present
innovative research and engage in interdisciplinary exchange related to the theme of the Association – the study of the connections, in the broadest sense, between Land Use Planning and Law.
Both Law and Planning are social institutions aimed at promoting the public interest while safeguarding individual liberties. Both guide private decision making, but derive strength and authority from public participation. The
challenges facing policy makers today emphasize the need to study the ways in which the law enables and restricts planning.
Call for Papers:
We invite papers on all topics related to law and planning, including, but not limited to the following:
– Legal aspects of urban, regional, and rural planning
– Land use controls
– Property rights, expropriation and compensation
– Land policy, land management, and land readjustment
– Heritage/environmental protection
– Land use and aboriginal rights
Abstracts may be submitted by email by December 15, 2010 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We expect to adjudicate all abstracts by January 31, 2011.
