THE BEAUTY OF EMBRACING NEW PERSPECTIVES

School of political science

The two disciplinary areas of the School of Political Science, now reaching its 9th 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.

The 2020/2021 programme is divided in two parts. The first one “Fragments from the First Republic: leaders, parties, democracy in the twilight years” deals with the political and institutional sphere.

The season preceding the decline of the First Republic and the inevitable passage towards the new time, marked by the advent of the Berlusconian era, which finds its ideal epiphany in the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 will be discussed in this cycle. The programme will therefore focus on the period starting from the "season of rights", at the end of the 1960s, with the students’ and workers' struggles of '68 and culminating in the 1970s, with the legislative achievements represented by the Statute of the Rights of Workers, the health care reform, democracy in schools, and the opening of a new chapter of civil right, through the use of referendum. This highly controversial season saw the alternation of lights and shadows, of historical achievements in terms of rights and emancipation of social categories, and dramatic wounds inflicted on Italian society by terrorism. Important personalities such as Nilde Iotti, Marco Pannella, Bettino Craxi, Giulio Andreotti, Giorgio Almirante and Aldo Moro have been witnesses of this time. They represented distant political visions yet united by a pragmatic sense of political action, exercised with different styles and sensitivities, in which, however, the thrust of ideological prejudice did not prevail over realism. Their action will be analysed in a perspective that is no longer chronicle and therefore net of any ideology or prejudice.
The thought and contribution to political culture, parliamentary life, government and opposition of some protagonists of the First Republic will be deepened through analyses and debates. They aim at representing, in terms of legal, historical and political research the content of relevant political experiences in the institutional dialectic of the so-called First Republic. In addition, two events will be dedicated to the centenary of the Communist Party, analysed from the historical perspective and from the point of view of political action in the First Republic.

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
