Crisis, Sustainability and Citizenship(s)

The RG Crisis, Sustainability and Citizenship(s) intends to draw up a normative frame of reference for the various – economic, social, political and cultural – dimensions involved in State reform for the 21st century in a context of shared or “late” sovereignty, with a view to anticipating the implications of such reform for traditional legal methodology. This task should be performed by assessing the challenges of trans-statehood and their regulatory repercussions, with a special focus on “internationalisation” and “Europeanisation” phenomena in traditional areas of public law and in new legal areas of a transnational type. Finally, the Group endeavours to outline legal standards to deal with the new social and economic public policies under the matrix of sustainability.
