Theme of work “Protection of property”. The planned purpose of work is the detailed statement about - the term “Possessions”, leases and licences to occupy property, social security payments and pensions and Legal claims as possessions, deprivation of property and controlling the use of property.
Protecting property right as human right presents particular problems and it is therefore not surprising that agreement could not be reached on its inclusion in the Convention as originally drafted. A right to property of sorts is included in Article 1 of Protocol 1, but its content is broadly framed and the permissible restrictions are very widely drawn indeed.
Article 1 of the First Protocol provides:
Every natural or legal person is entitled to the peaceful enjoyment of his possessions. No one shall be deprived of his possessions except in the public interest and subject to the conditions provided for by law and by the general principles of international law. The preceding provisions shall not, however, in any way impair the right of State to enforce such laws as it deems necessary to control the use of property in accordance with the general interest or to secure the payment of taxes or other contributions or penalties.…
