The Italian referendum on constitutional reform that will be held on the 4th of December will be a turning point in Italian politics, and may have profound repercussions not only within the country but also across Europe.
In these blogs, originally published on the LSE EUROPP Blog, eminent scholars, who are member of the IPSG discuss the key issues at stake:
Fabio Bordignon (University of Urbino):
"Will Italy's constitutional referendum mark the beginning of a Third Republic?"
Gianfranco Pasquino (Emeritus Professor of political science at the University of Bologna and member of the Accademia dei Lincei) and Andrea Capussela:
"Italy's constitutional reform is ill conceived and can be safely rejected"
