Autonomies: Italy and South Tyrol
This research area focuses on the long-term interdisciplinary monitoring of phenomena linked to the special status of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen, of the Autonomous Province of Trento and of the Autonomous Region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol in the framework of Italian regionalism.
A continuous scientific monitoring is particularly important after the last projects of reform of the Italian Constitution (one completed in 2001; another started in 2014 but rejected by a referendum in 2016), which have strong consequences on the regional system and, in particular, on the special autonomies such as the one of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen.
The Institute is performing an in-depth-study, analyzing the implementation and the effects of the reform(s) on the autonomy of South Tyrol. In this light, the aim of the manifold activities within this project (e.g. publications, training, teaching, organization of and participation in conferences, consultancy activities) is to make the research results of the Institute available to different target groups, ranging from policy-makers, civil servants and researchers, to the general public.
