(p.52) 4 Rights in Tangible Objects
The International Law of Property

John G Sprankling

Oxford University Press

This chapter and the next four chapters analyze how international law affects rights in specific types of property. Property rights in tangible objects are addressed in this chapter. The doctrines discussed in the chapter are linked by four themes: the objects they concern are usually valuable or dangerous; the doctrines generally have a transboundary component; they principally concern the rights of non-state actors; and they all stem from treaties, reflecting a consensus that international law should supersede municipal law. The subject areas include: aircraft, railway, and other movable equipment; art and other cultural objects; civilian property during war; contraband; genetically modified organisms; hazardous and toxic substances; household possessions; humans; human body parts; property of diplomats; property of intergovernmental organizations; and wild animals and plants.

Keywords:   aircraft, animals, contraband, cultural objects, hazardous substances, human body parts, intergovernmental organizations, international law, tangible objects, war
