Abstract

If we examine things from a different point of view, we could be able to see something that otherwise it would not be possible. This is the purpose of this thesis. It seeks to 'see' the reform process put in place - in the aftermath of the 2007 financial and economic crisis - within the European Union and in Italy from a different point of view. Specifically, applying Stephen Gill's 'new constitutionalism of disciplinary neoliberalism' theoretical framework, the reform of the labour market, as well as the institutional reform - proposed and partially implemented by Renzi Cabinet, between 2014-2016 - in Italy do not seem to be a mere 'domestic' or 'internal' issue. By contrast, this thesis argues that such regulations envisage a neoliberal restructuring of the Italian politico-legal system, which would confirm Gill's claim that new constitutionalist measures aim to shift nation states from social democratic towards neoliberal orders.
