Ideas:
“  I am currently working on issues of sustainability. What does the thinking about sustainability and sustainable development bring with it for the law of property. Sustainability, is my thesis, requires us to fundamentally reconsider and reconceptualise our property law building bricks. I am finalizing a first (joint) research project and will move on to the next dealing with positive obligations (propter rem) of owners.  ”
