URP 572 – Comparative Housing and Property Policy


This course offers an advanced introduction to crucial issues about the law of planning, property rights, land use, and access to housing. Deploying American property and land use law as a starting point, legal materials from western and non-western countries provide the comparative angle. Readings from feminist and postcolonial theory as well as critical legal and race studies compliment the cases from planning law and practice.

Note: This course is pre-approved as a MUD Directed Elective in the Policy, Law, and Institutions category.
