Dear friends and colleagues,

How are planning and law related? How can spatial planners’ interventions in property rights be justified? Who benefits from spatial planning in a society committed to the rule of law?

Last year, our Land Policy Reading Club was dedicated to re-reading classic literature on land policy. In 2023, we re-read more current literature on land, property, and spatial planning. Please find attached more information on the LAND POLICY READING CLUB.

The (online) reading club is organized in cooperation with the International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights (PLPR) and the AESOP Thematic Group on Planning, Law and Property Rights.

To accept our invitation, please register at or contact thomas.hartmanntu-dortmundde !

Best wishes

Ben & Thomas
