Program Overview

Program Description:
The program starts with an analysis of the objectives and the benefits of economic integration, and in particular the European common market. It continues with the creation and the evolution of the European Economic and Monetary Union. We will therefore analyze the objectives and instruments of the European Central Bank's monetary policy, fiscal policy, the provisions of the Maastricht Treaty, and the Stability and Growth Pact. A further theme that will be dealt with is Economic Governance. The course continues with the "outer side" of the common market: the commercial policy both at a bilateral and at a multilateral level. Finally the course will present the strategy that the EU countries have started in order to support competitiveness through, above all, structural reforms. The aim of the course is to provide the general framework of European Political Economy, allowing participants to gain the basic knowledge necessary to understand the functioning of political and economic institutions of the European Union. The course is in Italian but some supporting materials will be in English. Useful to the Diploma course in "European Affairs".

The ISPI Winter and Summer School offer students, graduates, and young professionals the opportunity to get closer to major international issues through a catalog of intensive short courses on topics such as: Development and Cooperation Humanitarian Emergencies European Affairs Microfinance Human Rights Project Planning Geopolitical Areas The Winter School provides courses of 15 hours each, offered on weekends (Friday and Saturday from 9.30am to 6.30pm). The Summer School provides courses of 15 hours each offered in July and September, developed on two days each (Monday / Tuesday, Wednesday / Thursday, Friday / Saturday) from 9.30am to 6.30pm. The program allows participation to a maximum of three courses per week. The multidisciplinary approach adopted allows an analysis of the historical, political, legal, economic, and cultural issues addressed, providing participants with the necessary tools for further studies. The "traditional" teaching approach is supplemented by testimonials, tutorials, simulations, illustrations, case studies, as well as the active involvement of participants through group work. The ISPI Winter and Summer School courses are recognized by some universities in Lombardy, in order to obtain credits. The Summer School ISPI is also partner of the Summer School of Milan. Thanks to this agreement, each student who attends the Summer School courses ISPI will receive a card with which you can get discounts at various exhibitions and museums of Milan.
