VISITING PROFESSORS

Gianformaggio Chair

The Department has established a Chair, dedicated to the late Professor of Philosophy of Law, Letizia Gianformaggio. Visiting professors affiliated to foreign Universities are invited to teach for one semester at the University of Ferrara.

Experts in different areas of law will thus enrich the Department’s list of courses, giving students the opportunity to get in touch with legal cultures of other countries.

In 2020-21 the Letizia Gianformaggio Chair will be endowed to Professor Manuel Cancio Melia (Univ. Autonoma de Madrid), for a course on Organised Crime and Terrorism: Social Phenomenon and Legal Response (II Semester)

Macrocrimes - Centre for European Legal Studies on Macro-Crime

Macrocrimes was established at the Department of Law of the University of Ferrara in November 2018, within the framework of a project leading to its acknowledgment as one of the best Departments in Italy in terms of research quality (“Dipartimenti di eccellenza”).

The Centre for European Legal Studies on Macro-Crime focuses on the legal aspects relating to the fight against “macro-crime”, a notion ranging from core crimes – such as war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and aggression – to crimes entailing grave breaches of fundamental rights, crimes linked to immigration and organized, mafia-type, terrorist and transnational crime, from economic crime to environmental and food crime.
