Book presentation “The crisis of confidence in legislation”


The current crisis of confidence in legislation that  has hit Western democracies has worsened  during the last few months. The Covid-19 pandemic has completely rewritten the geography of trust towards institutions at all levels of government (national, European and international), something that also impacts on legislative effectiveness. The book that will be presented by some of its authors contains and further elaborates on the interventions made at the Conference on this topic organised in October 2019 by the IAL (International Association of Legislation) together with LUMSA ,LUISS Guido Carli and Roma Tre Universities and with the patronage of the Italian Senate and that of the European Parliament. It provides a deep understanding of reasons and responsibilities related to the crisis, in order to prepare the ground for restoring confidence in policies.
