    Private Property is Ego

    Reflections on Property, Neoliberalism and Law

    By Paul Babie

    Drawing on Badiou’s statement: ‘Property as ego", this book argues that the reality of neo-liberalism means that rather than seeing it as ego, we need to understand that private property is ego.

    Political Action, Law and Empowerment

    By Bethania Assy

    Mirrored Identities of the Legal Order
