Prerequisites: The course is entirely held in English.
Target skills and knowledge: The course is intended to provide students with a critical knowledge of contemporary European and global trends in the field of social and economic rights. Students will be able to contrast and distinguish between different models of social and economic rights, as well as their ideological underpinnings and the social background upon which they are built.
Examination methods: Oral final examination. Upon request, the oral examination can be replaced with the submission of a written paper on a negotiated subject, upon which the evaluation will be based.
Assessment criteria: Students are expected to familiarize with the subjects that are taught and to develop critical appraisals of them.
Course unit contents: The course will deal with the hottest post-global crisis topics, on a comparative perspective. It will ponder how and if the "rights" structure that prevails in contemporary public law is responsive to contemporary needs. Case discussions will be the prevailing method through which topics will be treated. Special attention will be devoted to economic and social rights in America, Europe, and new global powers.

The following issues will be covered :
- right to entrepreneurship
- right to health
- right to housing
- right to food and water
- right to social assistance
- entrepreneurship and labour rights
- individual rights and e-conomy.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course will be run as a seminar, and blend lectures with case discussions based on pre-assigned readings.
Given the necessity of shaping the course according to the evolving circumstances, a curated and updated list of readings will be given at the beginning of the course.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Students are expected to have read assignments in advance. At the beginning of the course the Professor will assign readings for each lesson.
