Jones, Henry (2019). Property, territory, and colonialism: an international legal history of enclosure. Legal Studies 39(2): 187-203.

Author(s) from Durham


This paper is concerned with how law organises and controls space. It offers a new history of enclosure in the context of early English colonialism. By drawing this connection, the paper opens up new lines of enquiry into how law organises and produces space at both the domestic and international scale.
