Comparative Property Law and Economics
This lecture is part of Prof. Schäfer's lecture series "New Frontiers in Law and Economics".
Boundary encroachment is a common property problem around the world. In the common-law country, boundary encroachment is dealt with by the adverse possession doctrine. In some other countries, boundary encroachment is handled bythe accessio doctrine. In 50 countries, including Germany, there is a separate boundary encroachment doctrine. This talk gives an overview of the boundary encroachment doctrine around the world and uses economic analysis to assess the cost and benefit of the design of the boundary encroachment doctrine.
