The Politics of Property Specialist Group of the PSA was established in 2008. Its key ambition is to promote the political study of property in all of its many forms. Property is one of the key ideas in most of the major schools of political thought. It is also a quite central category in day-to-day political life. It is at the heart of the political economy. It is the disputed terrain of aboriginal peoples’ movements. It is the key to knowing what it is we might own in the world including our selves. We believe that at present there is a seriously unmet need for a more focused approach to the study of the politics of property in the UK and this new specialist group is designed to meet that need.
