Comparative Legal Diagnostics

At the 2011 Biennial Conference of the Italian Association of Comparative Law, Giuseppe Bellantuono presented a paper on COMPARATIVE LEGAL DIAGNOSTICS. This is the abstract:

Is comparative law relevant for policymaking? Many studies have shown the influence of comparative legal research on legislators and judges. However, such influence seems confined to those phases of the policymaking process where the only task is to draft legal rules. In all the other phases, from agenda setting to the choice of policy options to implementation and assessment, comparative legal knowledge is almost absent.
