I'm thrilled to announce that anthropologist/lawyer Meghan Morris has agreed to guest blog during the month of February and share some of her insights about comparative property regimes. Meghan is a doctoral student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. Her dissertation project focuses on property and land restitution in Colombia, and she has also conducted research on Cuban agrarian reform. She holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a Masters in International Relations from The Fletcher School (Tufts), where her research focused on intellectual property regimes related to plants. Meghan has been involved in environmental justice and human rights work in South America since the early 2000s, and she is a researcher at the Bogotá-based Center for Law, Justice and Society (Dejusticia).
