A.Y. 2020/2021
Overall hours
Learning objectives
The course in "Comparative Human Rights Protection" is intended to promote a deep understanding of fundamental rights and liberties, and of fundamental rights protection. Different constitutional experiences will be considered through the comparative method. The analysis will focus on the constitutional evolution of fundamental rights and liberties, conventionally divided into three "generations", and on recent retrogressions.
Special attention shall be paid to national and supranational judicial remedies, with specific reference to the European context. The analysis of legal texts and of the jurisprudence will be integrated by considerations on the interaction between national and supranational jurisdictions.
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge and understanding:
The course is expected to provide students specific notions on fundamental rights and liberties - and on fundamental rights protection, both at national and supranational level - in order to develop a critical understanding of the topic.

Applying knowledge and understanding:
Specific knowledge acquired through theoretical lessons, as well as through the analysis of case-studies, will be oriented to develop students' ability to provide a critical analysis and autonomous evaluation of complex phenomena. Students will gain practical skills in access to information and research activities. Interactive teaching activities will promote the use of institutional websites, scientific journals, and databases.
