Internazionalizzazione e lingua degli insegnamenti uni- versitari: la desiderabile autonomia delle università italiane

By Michele Giovannini


In recent years, the Italian legislator has launched an interesting process of internationalization of Italian universities, which affects several aspects of the regulatory framework concerning universities. Among the various measures introduced, those concerning the change of the teaching language have generated much debate, which was further enlivened by recent Italian administrative case law.
The resulting framework, however, has raised several issues which require in-depth consideration by scholars, with a view to assess if and to what extent the internationalization that was implemented through the changing of the teaching language has any connections with the troubled issue of university autonomy.
