The protection of the human right to water in the multi-level governance: a comparison between Italy and Germany
The dissertation represents an in-depth analysis of the multi-level protection of the human right to water: first it will consider its recognition and evolution on the most relevant documents on international level, both binding and not; secondly, the dissertation will follow the progresses made on the European level, with the analysis of EU law sources of primary and secondary law and the jurisprudence of the EUCJ, as well as the ECHR and the jurisprudence of the Court of Strasbourg; finally, the main focus will be on the national levels of Italy and Germany, considering primarily the constitutional sources and jurisprudence, and in particular the subdivision of competences between the State and the local levels. The main research goal is therefore the definition of the current state of protection of the human right to water on the analysed levels, and the understanding of the shared responsibilities of each one of them.
