Another date to save on your calendar: the 2014 Conference of the International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights will be held from February 11-14, 2014 in Haifa, Israel, at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The Conference will include the usual presentations, plus day-long workshops, and excursions. You don't need to be a PLPR member (although joining is free), nor do you have to be an "academic."
We attended the 2013 PLPR Conference in Portland, and it was well worth it. The message of PLPR is "Planning matters. Law matters. Property matters," and the 2013 Conference delivered, with presentations on those topics with an emphasis on international practices.
The 2014 event is chaired by Professor Rachelle Alterman, who, among other accomplishments, edited Takings International (2010), a book our ABA Section published that is a comparative study of how what we call regulatory takings are treated worldwide.
