Scientific and teaching activities

Professor Passalacqua’s teaching activity has always been within the two degree courses at the Department of Law (Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Business, Labour and Administrative Law) and deals with the public regulation of markets. She is the author of two monographs on the subject of public supervision of company activity and over sixty publications. Her first book deals with administrative inspections: it presents a possible typification, in order to reconstruct the relationship with the function and highlights the often precautional and in particular discretional nature, and it illustrates the contradictions that positive law presents on the subject of the guarantee and safeguard of the private individuals inspected. The second monograph is a marked criticism of the present model of public regulation of financial markets, uncovering alternative and more efficient means, capable of enhancing what the conservative regulations have always ignored, but which instead are a typical element of today’s banking and financial markets: uncertainty. In these terms, rules following the principals of precaution are identified, where the level of public intervention is graded according to the differing level of uncertainty linked to the activity regulated. Further research interests are mainly in public finance law, and more specifically in the process of expense revision and its effect on the managerial phase of public services; the structure and discipline of state-controlled companies; the relationship between law, economics and public interest.
