The Symposium on The New Public Law in a Global (Dis)Order—A Perspective from Italy has been published in I-Con, The International Journal of Constitutional Law (2011) vol. 9, issue 2, 301-448 (http://icon.oxfordjournals.org).
“Contributions stem from a two-day seminar hosted at NYU School of Law in September 2010, which was co-sponsored by The Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice along with the IRPA (Istituto di ricerche sulla pubblica amministrazione). The symposium opens with a preface by Sabino Cassese, Giulio Napolitano, and Lorenzo Casini outlining the main issues addressed by the various contributors. In the first article of the symposium Giulio Napolitano seeks to determine what, if any, mechanisms were adopted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis in order to guarantee continued international cooperation in the face of countervailing trends. A piece by Stefano Battini takes up three specific cases involving the World Heritage Convention with an eye toward clarifying how global regulatory regimes impact domestic regulation. Global regulatory regimes are also at the center of an article by Lorenzo Casini, which illuminates the relationship between cultural property law and a variety of global institutions—both public and private. Elisa D’Alterio offers an original perspective on the concept of judicial comity, beginning with an account of its development and subsequently tracing the reasons for its growing relevance. Maurizia De Bellis closes the symposium with an exploration of how public regulatory regimes operating globally have incorporated norms derived from private bodies—extending a trend dating back over a century into ever more complex contexts” (From the editorial by J.H.H.
