Research groups

Diritto costituzionale europeo e comparato dell’agricoltura
Il gruppo di ricerca indaga le tipologie di nuovi interessi pubblici che incidono sull'agrarietà dei fondi e delinea lo statuto pubblicistico della proprietà e dell’attività agricole. La ricerca è finanziata dalla Südtiroler Bauernbund ed è collegato alla Rivista "Il diritto dell'agricoltura" (http://www.edizioniesi.it/pubblicazioni/riviste/diritto_-_riviste/il-diritto-dellagricoltura-270005.html).
Skills
Topic Description Research area
Participatory democracy In all countries, decision making rocedures are under stress. Representative democracy can no longer claim universal representation, while direct democratic instruments are unfit to incude minorities. As a consequence, new, legally regulated forms of participation and inclusion are being developed. These procedures and their legal safeguards are studied in this line of research Public comparative law
Emergencies and legal change Impact of emergencies on the legal changes Public comparative law
Comparative federalism Combined with a number of projects on the ground with several international organizations and networks, this research line deals with questions such as: How do federal and regional systems work? How does their adaption take place? How are powers divided and exercised in a compound structure? How do courts interpret intergovernmental relations? Public comparative law
Constitutional Litigation The field explores legal principles, machineries, and devices which make the fundamental law justiciable. It also devises models of adjudication which aim to deliver a synthesis of complexity by legal categories. Litigation, Adjudication and Dispute Resolution
Law and Humanities The research is cross-disciplinary and engages into a dialogue with the humanities around the subject of law. For this purpose, the arts and humanities disciplines are taken to include literature, history , philosophy, and the whole spectrum of performance and representational arts. Law and Humanities
Legal Geography Legal Geography is a cross-disciplinary field of research. It examines the “spatiality of law,” i.e., how social reality is shaped by and understood (or constituted) in terms of the legal, and how the law is shaped by and understood in terms of space and place. It also explores the “law of spatiality,” i.e., the legal consideration of geographic features (physical, anthropic, economic, and social). Law not elsewhere classified
Legal Linguistics Legal linguistics is an interdisciplinary assessment, where linguistics (pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and semantics) and legal studies jointly examine the implied, authoritative meaning hinted at by spoken and written legal language within the historical, cultural, political, and social contexts where the law is practised. Law not elsewhere classified
Legal pluralism Legal pluralism acknowledges that in any geographical space defined by the conventional boundaries of a nation state, there is more than one law or legal system. The research looks at how different sources and providers of law, with different origins and legitimacies, coexist in one (complex) legal framework. This phenomenon does not only affect former colonial systems but also western countries Public comparative law
Constitutional transformations The research focuses on the formation, the evolution, the protection and the dissolution of constitutions. Especially the birth and death of constitutional systems are analyzed by looking at the procedures aiming at establishing legal rules for processes that used to be outside of the realm of law. This way, the study contributes to the comparative study of contemporary constitutionalism Public comparative law
