Learning objectives
Il corso ha per oggetto lo studio delle quattro libertà fondamentali, della creazione e dello sviluppo di un mercato unico in cui sia garantita a tutti gli operatori economici la stessa possibilità di competere, tenuto conto degli sviluppi del mercato comunitario e delle regole di concorrenza in cui si svolge, anche alla luce della recente giurisprudenza della Corte di giustizia dell'Unione europea. Esso mira a fornire agli studenti le coordinate essenziali per poter cogliere in maniera chiara le concrete dinamiche di funzionamento e di regolazione del mercato, sempre più transnazionale, in cui attualmente diversi attori economici (sia privati che pubblici) svolgono le proprie attività economiche.
