Extended program
The course provides an introduction to the constitutional law of the institutional and legal system composed by the EU, the ECHR and the national constitutions. Its main scope is to single out the interactions and the intertwinement between legal orders which actually shape the European constitutional landscape.The course will be divided into four parts.The first part (Method and History) will be devoted to sketch out the basic historical and constitutional premisesof the so called internationalization of constitutional law: a special attention will be given to the legal devices of Europeanization of national constitutions. The second part (Institutions) will briefly cover the composition, function, and powers of the legislative and executive branches, i.e. the European Council, the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament, and the European Commission, with a particular focus on their attitude to engage in decisions which impinge upon constitutional matters. The third part (Courts) will sketch out the growing interactions between judicial actors and, in particular, the regulated paths of judicial dialogue (in particular preliminary reference for the EU and the new Protocol No. 16 for the ECHR). The final part (Rights and Citizenship) will deal with the basic tenets of the composed system of protection of fundamental rights (based on EU law, ECHR and national constitutions) with the effort to single out the fundamental guidelines (subsidiarity, dialogue, levels of protection) called to make it effective.
