Video Interview: Developments in Italian Constitutional Law Featuring Cristina Fasone

Richard Albert, Boston College Law School

In this latest installment of our video interview series at I-CONnect, I interview Cristina Fasone on developments in Italian constitutional law.

In the interview, we discuss the recent electoral reforms in Italy, the Constitutional Court’s case law on domestic matters and in connection with European Union and international law, current debates in Italian regionalism, and future lines of inquiry in Italian constitutional law.

Cristina Fasone is a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute, where she is one of the coordinators of the project on Constitutional Change through Euro-Crisis Law. As of September 1, 2015, she will be an Assistant Professor of Comparative Public Law at the LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome, Department of Political Science. Her doctoral dissertation, published in 2012, investigates the relationship between parliamentary committees and forms of government in France, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. She has served as an intern at the European Parliament and the Senate of Canada, and is part of the new generation of Italian constitutional scholars engaged in the comparative study of public law.

The interview runs for 34 minutes, and is available here.
