The Conference will take place on 24 November 2017 at Collegio Carlo Alberto in turin. The aim of the Conference is to ​deal with the idea of regulatory competition in the EU, critically engaging with its historical and philosophical foundations, the way in which it materializes and its implications on the constitutional fabric of the EU. The seminar also aims to shed more light on the role that EU law plays in this context: whether it acts as a facilitator of regulatory competition or as an impediment to it. Participation in the seminar is free. Please register at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

On 24 May Maurizio Ferrera gives a public lecture at The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies.    Since Italy’s entry into the ERM in 1978, the strategic goal of the country’s center-left elites has been to firmly anchor Italy’s unstable and weak political economy within “Europe.” Pursuing this goal has been a balancing act: molding an external constraint in Brussels to make it domestically “manageable”; forcing compliance at home through structural and institutional reform. Admission into the EMU with the first group of countries in 1998 was an emblematic sign of success: Italy was able to become a “pupil” of the top league of Europe. But it remained an (increasingly) bad pupil, especially under Berlusconi. When the crisis hit in 2008, Italy’s political economy quickly became a shambles again. The risk of being downgraded to a “program country” under Troika surveillance loomed on the horizon. As in the early 1990s, a technocratic government, led this time by Monti, adopted a harsh reform package and tied the country’s hands with a much stricter external constraint: the Fiscal Compact. In 2014, Italy exited the EU’s EDP and MIP procedures: back to the classroom. Under Letta and, more openly, under Renzi, Italy has also become more assertive, in an attempt to re-mold the external constraint in a more favorable direction. It remains to be seen whether the country’s political economy will be able to fully overcome the crisis and sustain the European political ambitions of the Renzi government.
