Guido Calabresi’s Seminar

On March 19th, Professor Guido Calabresi (Yale Law School) presented the lecture Altruism, Not-For-Profits and the Economics of Well-Being at the International University College of Turin as part of the Angelini Seminars.

In his presentation, Professor Calabresi discussed the limitations of the economic theory to deal with altruism and not-for-profit actions. He challenged the orthodox law and economics approach – based on neoclassical economics – and presented some ideas that are in his forthcoming book “the future of law and economics”.

The Common Horizon Project

The Common Horizon is a project developed by the students of the International University College of Turin (IUC).

It is an open space for debates and the publications of texts written by members of the IUC community.

The Common Horizon operates like an academic blog and is edited by the IUC LLM students. Students also work as content mobilizers – proposing specific debates and inviting scholars to write about them – and network builders – getting in touch with other institutions to amplify the discussion published here.

The project has as its main goals to:

  • Strengthen the institutional image of the IUC;
  • Foster the spread of ideas and thesis created by IUC members;
  • Create an “intellectual sense of community”, with shared problems and different ideas relating to them;
  • Develop a new “digital commons” (the knowledge produced in the website);
  • Enrich our broad wide knowledge on collectivity, sharing and management of intellectual resources.

The Common Horizon is inspired by the work of professor Ugo Mattei and the IUC faculty.
