THE PUBLIC DOMAIN AND THE PRIVATE DOMAIN: MYTHS AND SHADOWS

Abstract


In effect, the dichotomy between the public and the private domains of the state once again draws the attention of doctrine, both public as well as private, not only due to the continual controversies caused by the regime, the juridical effects and nature of dominion but also, and above all, arising from the recent legislative reforms and proto-reforms with ranges and consequences that require grasping and deciphering. We here refer in particular to Decree Law no. 280/2007 of 7 August, of the Legal Regime for Public Immovable Property as well as the draft law on Public Dominion Properties, publicly unveiled by portuguese government officials on 27 October 2008.
