Fundamental Rights are a key topic of the Europeanization and globalization of the institutions of public law at every level of government. The protection of fundamental rights requires specific legal knowledge and a proper methodology. Theories and practices of fundamental rights need to be analysed from different viewpoints so to enable students
- to apply a systematic interpretation of the various legal orders and sources of law regarding fundamental rights,
- to apply all tools offered by jurisdictional, administrative and political guarantees, including human rights watching, within the various legal orders operating in Europe
- to analyse and provide solutions for all kinds of old and new, decided, pending or future fundamental rights' problems.

Modalità di insegnamento
The course shall be organised in face-to-face lectures, that will be supported on the Moodle platform by the publication of supplementary teaching materials relating to the course topics.
Attending students could be involved in giving a short presentation of a specific case study by a comparative point of view.
In case of emergency situation, classes organization may be subject to change. Any changes will be promptly communicated on the Moodle platform. More generally, all communications relating to the course, including any decisions on intermediate tests and exercises, will be posted on a special forum on the Moodle platform. Students interested in actively attending the course are therefore warmly invited to enrol themselves to the course activated on the Moodle platform before the formal start of classes.
Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento
The exam generally consists of a written test with open-ended questions designed to assess the acquisition of knowledge related to the course topics. In the case the emergency situation does not allow exams to be held in person, remote written examinations may be considered. In any case, remote written examinations will be available for those who find themselves in one of the conditions set out in the University regulations in force.
Based on the number of students actively involved in the classes, attending students may be admitted to discuss a case or a new book on specific topics of fundamental rights during classes and present a paper on the case (or on the book) for the examination.
