Property sets out the ways in which society allocates, governs, and enforces rights and duties among persons with respect to resources. The boundaries of property are constantly changing. They influence and are influenced by social, economic, and political shifts. Nowadays, in view of ever intensifying foreign investments and other cross-border ventures, the institution of property may face its greatest challenge ever: the transition from a largely domestic legal construct into one that accommodates globalization.
