The Legitimacy of Extralegal Property: Global Perspectives and China’s Experience

Cite Embed

Binary thinking has been entrenched in property law, posing challenges to the protection of land tenure and land users who have no title to the land they cultivate. Ting Xu critiques the state law centred approach to evaluating the legitimacy of property and defends extralegal property, as legitimate claims to land and related natural resources that are not against the law, but that are not recognised by the law as formal property rights. Ting Xu joined the University of Sheffield School of Law in September 2015. She holds an LLB from Sun Yat-sen University and an LLM (with Distinction) and PhD from the London School of Economics.
