Based on the idea that control over land is fundamental to influencing the urban development process and thus the quality of urban areas, this project investigates land management tool and strategies. It is organized in two steps. The first sets the general framework of the institutional regime of land. The second analyzes and evaluates, through a case study approach, different land management tools and strategies. This project is directly linked to the work done in the COST action TU 602.
