A new program to be delivered in English, the European Approach to Better Regulation, is due to commence at LUMSA in the second semester of the 2016-2017 academic year; the program has been selected by the European Commission from others within the Jean Monnet module focussing on EC issues.
The course is aimed in particular at students of law, economics, political science and psychology, and comprises three modules with 40 hours total contact time. The knowledge that students acquire will be useful in commercial and regulatory contexts within regulated sectors, with a program that represents a complete departure from anything currently available in the Italian HE system.
Students will participate in interactive sessions, supported by case studies, workshops, seminars and conferences on the following issues: theory of regulation, techniques for evaluating regulation, cognitive and behavioural analysis of the impact of regulation. Module tutors: Prof. Nicoletta Rangone, course coordinator and lecturer in administrative and economic law; Prof. Matteo Rizzolli, professor in law and economics and economic policy; Prof. Alberto Alemanno, Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Law at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales in Paris and Global Clinical Professor of Law at the New York University School of Law. Expert cognitive scientists will also participate in the seminars and workshops.
At the end of the 6-credit course, the students will be required to apply the knowledge they have acquired in a one-month work placement at a regulatory institute such as the European Commission, CONSOB, AGCOM, ANAC etc, after which the student will receive another 3 credits.
