The aim of the course is to illustrate the legislation and practice relating to the management of emergencies, with particular regard to terrorist and health issues, in order to assess whether the Italian legal system has the appropriate tools to deal with similar situations or whether constitutional or legislative reforms are appropriate. The course will allow students to know in depth the Italian legislation on the subject, without disattending some specific European experiences, and to critically apply the knowledge acquired to concrete cases.
The course deals with the issue of emergency management in constitutional law. In particular, given a general framework of the topic in the Italian legal system and within the constitutional systems of pluralist democracy, the course will focus on two emergency situations: the terrorist and the health ones. Special attention will be paid to the impact that emergencies produce at institutional level and with regard to the enjoyment of constitutional freedoms, always in balancing with the needs of collective security and public health.
