Abstract

Economic and political reforms have triggered the return of individual property in socialist Asia brought these countries into the globalized economy that is characterized by legally protected property rights. Reforms have also provoked debate in the media, academic circles, and among state regulators and landholders about market values and social values, legal rights to property and how to balance infrastructure development with private interests. This article proposes a theoretical framework for considering how dialogical exchanges shape the way states respond these social problems generated by land reforms.
