This volume is the eighth instalment in the Property Law Perspectives Series. Produced by the Young Property Lawyers' Forum (www.yplf.net), a global network of early career property law scholars, this volume presents the carefully curated highlights of two consecutive conferences held virtually in 2021 and 2022. A broad range of property law topics are covered in this book within the three themes of `Property and Sustainability', `Property and Society in Extraordinary Times', and `Property Law for the Future'. The chapters have been submitted by talented young researchers from jurisdictions around the world including Italy, Peru, and South Africa, with each chapter providing an interesting analysis of an important aspect of property law. This book merits the attention of every student and academic interested in new developments in property scholarship, as well as of legal practitioners looking to place societal developments into a legal context.
