Coming Together or Moving Apart?
How regional differentiation is threatening unity within States in Europe

Regional disparities in Europe are threatening unity within States since the economic crises. The talk will explore how EU, States, and subnational entities are dealing with this challenge by focusing on the recent Italian and UK experiences.

She has taught courses on law, citizenship, and human rights at the University of Teramo, the LUMSA University of Rome, and at the International Telematic University (UNINETTUNO). Professor Saputelli holds a laurea in law and a Ph.D. in Italian and European constitutional law from the University of Teramo and is licensed to practice law in Italy.
