Born from the collaboration between the Tuscia University of Viterbo (professors Giulio Vesperini and Stefano Battini), the University of Rome Sapienza (professor Sabino Cassese) and the New York University School of Law (professors Benedict Kingsbury and Richard B. Stewart), the Viterbo Global Administrative Law Seminar was originally conceived by a group of prominent scholars from Italy, United States, France, Spain, and Germany as a forum to discuss the most salient and debated issues related to the increasing use of administrative law-type mechanisms in global governance.

The aim of the annual GAL seminar – held in Viterbo, Italy, at the University of La Tuscia since 2005 – is to provide an opportunity for scholars from all over the world to explore and contribute to the development of these emerging themes. Since the beginning the Seminar has been promoted and organized by the Law Department (now Department of European linguistic and literary studies, communication studies and historical-juridical studies) of the Tuscia University of Viterbo, with the support of the Institute for Research on Public Administration (IRPA) and other public and private entities.

Each year a general topic is chosen as overarching theme of the Seminar. Nine months in advance a call for papers is issued to invite scholars from all over the world to submit paper proposals. Since the first GAL seminar, the best papers presented have been published in leading legal reviews and journals.

The topics discussed in the past editions are: Global Administrative Law and Global Governance (2005); Accountability within the Global Context (2006); Participation of Private Actors in Global Administrative Law (2007); Global Administrative Law: From Fragmentation to Unity? (2008); Legality Review in the Global Administrative Space (2009); The Financial Crisis and the Global Regulatory Governance (2010); Private and Private-Public Regulation: Global Administrative Dimensions (2011); and Indicators as a Technology of Global Governance (2012).

Since 2010 the Viterbo GAL Seminar Steering Committee includes professors Giulio Vesperini, Stefano Battini, Edoardo Chiti, Mario Savino, and Lorenzo Casini. The current Seminar Organizing Team is made of Giulia Bertezzolo, Eleonora Cavalieri, and Elisabetta Morlino.
