Changing politics in Portugal
Politics Professor Claudio Radaelli travelled to Portugal to present a major report on lawmaking to the Portuguese Parliament.
The report on lawmaking and smart regulation, Feitura das Leis, was inspired by ground-breaking research by the Centre for European Governance (CEG), and Professor Radaelli has advised on and contributed to all stages. It was presented to the Portuguese Parliament (Assembleia da República) on 28 November 2014 by Professor Radaelli and the report’s authors, a team of lawyers based at Nova University. Claudio said: “It was exciting to advise this formidable team of lawyers - I learned a lot from their original research. I am delighted to see that they have drawn on the approach and findings of our research on lawmaking across nations. Good regulation saves lives and is the most sensible way to produce efficiency gains at a time of economic slowdown and budgetary problems in Europe.” Funding for this project came from Fundação Francisco Manuel dos Santos.
