Irpa Working Papers



The IRPA Working Papers Series aims at disseminating the results of researches promoted by IRPA and to contribute to the debate on topics which are of relevance to the activities of IRPA. The series includes papers submitted by IRPA fellows and by other scholars and/or practitioners.

Papers, selected by the IRPA Working Papers Steering Committee (Stefano Battini, Sabino Cassese, Lorenzo Casini, Edoardo Chiti, Bernardo Giorgio Mattarella, Giulio Napolitano, Aldo Sandulli, Mario Savino, Luisa Torchia, Giulio Vesperini) are published electronically and are available online.

Working Papers are issued at the responsibility of their authors, and do not reflect views of IRPA or associated personnel.

IRPA Working Papers are also available at the Social Science Research Network (SSRN).
