Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the use of property rights as a tool for promoting sustainable landscapes through a case study of a peri-urban landscape in New Zealand's South Island. It then uses the case study to suggest several perceived dichotomies innate to the politics of property. The chapter looks at the collapsing dichotomies of property and what they mean for the stewardship of landscapes and the future of property. It selects a case study landscape that exemplifies the intensifying and often-competing pressures brought to bear on natural resources from human action. The chapter examines the institutional durability of property to accommodate such pressures and complexities to achieve a sustainable preservation of the landscape and its component natural resources. It observes that the dichotomies that characterize the politics of property are less distinct than generally perceived.

Keywords:collapsing dichotomies; New Zealand; property rights; sustainable landscapes
