Article on Aproximaciones teóricas y metodológicas sobre las consecuencias de la sucesión en la distribución de la propiedad rural (Consequences of Inheritance in the Inequity of Rural Property, A Theoretical and Methodological Approach)

RuralJorge Miguel Cristo Gonzalez recently published an Article entitled, Aproximaciones teóricas y metodológicas sobre las consecuencias de la sucesión en la distribución de la propiedad rural (Consequences of Inheritance in the Inequity of Rural Property, A Theoretical and Methodological Approach), Wills, Trusts, & Estates Law eJournal (2018). Provided below is an abstract of the Article.

The present article investigates the consequences of inheritance in the distribution of rural property. In order to achieve that, the fragmentation rate was estimated by succession, taking the distribution of rural property in the department of Cundinamarca as a basic guide, especially in two towns: Topaipí and Une. The article reports that, in the analyzed cases, inheritance is a factor that perpetuates the high inequality of the distribution of rural property. Moreover, a theoretical account is made on the foundations of inheritance throughout its existence in the Roman-Germanic juridical world and how this traditional law institution continues being currently so important that aims to be a mechanism that redefines the rights about property in a market society.
