AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Course aims at comparing, in a synchronic and diachronic way, the different constitutional systems, by taking into account the legal texts of reference, as well as the efficiency and effectiveness of the institutional solutions, the possibility to transplant the latter ones in other contexts or using them to define institutional models. Furthermore, the Course is focused on helping students in trying to better understand the trends, at international level, relating to the development of national legal systems, also in the light of global phenomena as supranational organizations and the international protection of human rights. More focused surveys will closely look at specific national legal systems considered particularly significant also in relation to our domestic perspective. Its functional and organizational development will be taken into consideration as well as in relation to the protection of fundamental freedoms. Particular attention shall be devoted both to the use of languages and to the students' skill to find juridical resources.
