EPLO Scholarships for the Summer Program on Parliamentary Democracy at LUISS Rome

Summer Program on Parliamentary Democracy in Europe” in collaboration with LUISS School of Government in Rome, Italy.

Scholarships offered by EPLO.

15-19 July 2024, conducted at Luiss University Campus in Viale Romania, Rome – Italy

This summer program on Parliamentary Democracy in Europe” (13th edition): “Next Generation EU: implementation and extension”. organized by LUISS School of Government in cooperation in collaboration with the ELGS, intends to investigate the new mechanism set up by the European Union and the Member States from different points of view, taking into consideration the various aspects that this new type of integration raises: from a historical point of view, through a comparison with the Marshall Plan; from an economic-financial point of view, analyzing the new resources needed to repay the debt; from a legal and constitutional point of view, investigating not only the legal basis of the instrument, but also the impact it originates on forms of government and national institutions.

National Recovery and Resilience Plans challenged both the European Union and the Member States and their initial drafting and, most of all, the implementation phases, because they insert several innovative features within the pre-existing euro-national budgetary procedures. The Next Generation EU also represents the basis through which the reform of the Stability and Growth Pact has been defined, as well as a tool to promote the rule of law.

The intensive course applies research-based knowledge and professional skills to the implementation of the mechanisms that have been put in place as the European response to the economic and social effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The focus is on the Next Generation EU and the Recovery and Resilience Facility, which have implemented a new “method of government”, established on a temporary basis, but sowing a seed that can germinate in the future. Through the Next Generation EU, an embryo of common debt was created for the first time to finance reforms and investments defined at national level, so stimulating growth to reabsorb the debts incurred to combat the pandemic.
