Date and time: Friday, 12 July 2019 (11:00 am - 12:00 pm)

Elisabet's research looks into the possibilities and the flexibility available in youth justice processes. The cornerstone of the research is the diversion of children from the formal criminal process based in both the best interest of the child and the opportunity principles. The importance of having into account the development and age of the juvenile delinquents is studied by several fields of knowledge such as sociology and psychology, so my research links those disciplines with law. The research also emphasizes the importance of promoting informal controls in order to prevent and address youth crime, as well as the benefits of using alternative methods of conflict resolution such as restorative justice or mediation.

Jacopo's focus of the current research is an analysis of the Italian “procedimento sommario di cognizione” in a three dimensional perspective: historical, constitutional and comparative. After a brief introduction on the method of research, the analysis begins with a broad exam of the evolution of the summary procedure in Italy from early 1800 until recent years. His research underlines the potential contrasts between the norms that currently regulate such procedure and the principles enshrined in the Italian Constitution. The third part provides a comparative analysis between the Italian procedure and the different principles and procedural methods that the C.P.R. provide in order to achieve a faster solution of the civil cases.
