Attività di supporto



The course aims at giving the students a overview of the rules governing the relationship between Public Administration and private actors (people or companies). The students will have the possibility to address different topics concerning the role of the rule of law in the regulation of the public powers as well as the limits to private actions posed by the governement and the local authorities, the mechanisms for ensuring legality, transparency and accountability in executive decision-making.
The course aims at reflecting a wider dimension of the administrative law, starting from the analysis of the rising of Administrative law in a historical perspective and by underlining the Consitutional frameworks that governs the character of the administrative law. The course will then deepen the rules governing the public law-private law divide also by analyzing the rules of public contract and the privatization v. public values protection. Finally the topic of security, sovereignty and globalization will be addressed.
