"Everyone has three lives: a public life,
a private life, and a secret life."
(Gabriel García Márquez)


School of political science

The two disciplinary areas of the School of Political Science, now reaching its 7th edition, are: the political and constitutional perspective, with particular reference to the development of Italian institutional and economic life, and the historical and internationalist perspective, with particular reference to dynamics in the Mediterranean and Eurasian area.

The School provides a training programme aimed at understanding and analysing the most significant socioeconomic and political variables in Italy, Europe, and the global economy. The School is engaged in research activities and is based on the constitutional and democratic principles of political, ideological, religious, and cultural pluralism. The main objective is to raise awareness, among citizens and especially among young people, of their rights as citizens and active participants in decision-making processes.

The School therefore aims to provide the necessary methodological and cognitive tools to those dealing in and with the political field, the working environment, public administration and various professional associations.

The School of Political Science guarantees a training programme aimed at providing a detailed overview of the historical evolution of political and social events on the national and international scene.

The School cooperates with centres of political and cultural education in both national and international institutions, and, for Higher Education and research activities, with academics and qualified experts from the cultural and political arena and from several production areas of the individual countries.

Seventy years after the implementation of the Italian Constitution, UNINT’s School of Political Science proposes to focus on some aspects of the text of the Constitution and analyse a number of its articles in the light of the changed social environment and the new geopolitical environment of the country, in the context of shared values and in line with the democratic “project” laid down by the Constitution. Talks will be delivered by speakers from the academic environment and cultural and public institutions, and will be focused on the evolution of the Constitution, starting from recent events. All the speakers from the political and institutional sphere are institutional leaders and represent the variety of political cultures in Parliament.

Topics to be discussed:

  • The Parliament: legislator and inspector
  • Constituents’ equality and gender equality at the present moment
  • The President of the Republic: “Costituzione formale e prassi”
  • Migration and citizenship
  • Minorities in the Constitution
  • Article 81 and Budgets and Balances. The rules of the game: Electoral laws and the Constitution
  • Criminal procedure and the Constitution
  • The majority and the opposition in the Constitution
  • Control and jurisdiction in the Court of Audit
  • Article 21 of the Constitution in the age of digital communication
  • Local authorities: from administrative decentralization to federalism
