Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The course is meant to endow students with a general knowledge of Eu legislation, paying also attention to its adoption and application in Italy. The course will also provide the fundamental guidelines for the analysis of the internal market regulation, by focusing on the free movement of people and services, European incentive schemes and state aids.


The course aims to provide students with a specific expertise on the functioning of the European Union internal market.

Within the duration of the lectures, students will gain an insightful understanding of EU lawmaking and policymaking process (with a specific focus on the activities of the European Parliament and of the European Commission), as well as knowledge of the legal acts of the EU institutions (in particular directives, regulations and decisions).

The course will then, after exploring the four freedoms (free movement of goods, persons, services and capitals), lead participants into of the policy fields which are most relevant for the tourism sector (including state aid and competition law) and will conclude with a specific focus on the opportunities (funding and incentive schemes) for small and medium size enterprises (SME) in the tourism sector.
