Description and teaching objectives

The course offers an interdisciplinary training, integrating traditional political and sociological teachings with the main legal and economic teachings, since the first year of the course. In the third year, three separate curricula (economic, legal, historical-political) allow the graduate to develop more specific expertise in the field of interest.
