Biografie (woord)

Frank K. Upham is the Wilf Family Professor of Property Law at New York University School of Law. He teaches Property, Law and Development and various courses on Japanese and Chinese law and society. His book, Law and Social Change in Postwar Japan (1987), won the Thomas J. Wilson Prize from Harvard University Press. In addition to having taught property law for over 30 years at several American law schools, he has taught in Argentina, China, Israel, Japan, and Taiwan. Upham has also worked as a World Bank consultant on the reform of property law in Southeast Asia.


'Frank K. Upham's book provides a critical, compelling evaluation of the conventional wisdom among many law-and-development scholars and aid-and-development agencies: namely, that formalization of private property rights, especially to land, enforced by a strong, competent, and politically independent judiciary, is an indispensable element in effective growth strategies for developing countries. Through highly illuminating case studies from both developed and developing countries (including China), Upham challenges this conventional wisdom by showing that property rights regimes are highly context-specific and idiosyncratic, and that no single model is a precondition for economic development.' Michael Trebilcock, University of Toronto
