Sjef J. H. M. Van Erp (University of Maastricht) has posted From 'Classical' to Modern European Property Law? on SSRN. Here's the abstract:
In this paper I will examine some fundamental aspects of European property law. Do European property law traditions share a common model of property law and, if this question is answered affirmatively, could this model be a foundation upon which European harmonisation and unification measures can be based? My thesis will be that the European property law traditions share a "classical" model of property law. A critical first analysis of this classical model will be offered, followed by an evaluation of the model from the perspective of an evolving European property law.
