September 2 - 4 2001


The International Association for the Study of Common Property (IASCP) in association with the Australian Property Institute (Queensland Division) is seeking papers for its inaugural Pacific Regional Meeting to be held on September 2-4, 2001 in Brisbane, Australia at the Queensland University of Technology.

The purpose of this inaugural Regional Meeting is to provide a comparison of regional common property resources (CPR's). Papers should focus on the following theme: Tradition and Globalisation: Critical issues for the accommodation of CPR's in the Pacific Region.

The IASCP Pacific Region includes both small nations, remnants of colonial empires, and medium sized nations, all of which are experiencing unprecedented development stresses upon both local and regional CPR's. It is a region which is characterized by vast tracts of maritime CPR's, whilst the significantly smaller terrestrial resources are being utilised in an unsustainable manner.

Abstracts should include a discussion of the objective of the proposed paper, the research design and methodology (where applicable) and some discussion of the nature and implications of the findings for CPR's in the Pacific region. Abstracts must be received by May 31, 2001 and must include the following information on the cover page: Title of Paper, two or three key words indicating topic, corresponding author, institutional affiliation, complete address, telephone, facsimile and email address. All of the above information is also requested for each additional author.

Persons interested in organizing a special session/panel discussion, or volunteering to serve as a session chair or discussant is encouraged to indicate interest by May 31, 2001.

Submit abstracts or completed papers via email to or as a 3.5" diskette via mail as shown below, as a Microsoft Word file as one document; length not to exceed 30 pages, including all tables, figures, notes, appendices, and references; margins, 2.54 cm.
