The stewardship model of property provides a duty-based alternative property concept that
is increasingly recognised as providing a more effective framework within which to tackle
a range of social and environmental challenges. Lockean property theory is traditionally
understood as supporting an extensive rights model of property and, as such, is potentially
in conflict with the stewardship model. This article seeks to demonstrate that the
stewardship model does not involve the problematic denial of Lockean natural rights to
property. It considers the similarities between the model of property justified in accordance
with Lockean principles and the model of stewardship.
