Abstract in another language

Property regimes are about people and relations among them as well as about values and norms and their enforcement. Surprisingly, these have been discussed primarily within ordered and peaceful political contexts. In this paper we discuss three case studies where war, violence and displacement have been impinging upon property regimes. We explore the effects of war and displacement on the norms, values and practices of property and look at consistencies in the ways property relations and practices are shaped in conflict situations. The discussion of these issues starts with case studies from Chad, Croatia and Azerbaijan, goes on to display the specificities of violence and displacement in each case, and ends with a comparative discussion of how notions of land and housing as territory, as a scarce resource or as an economic resource are articulated differently under different experiences of violence and displacement.
