On November 20, 2019 the Department of Law of the University of Bergamo will host the IXth edition of the conference “Europe and Sport”. This year the conference will focus on the right to education of student-athletes and the relevance of dual careers programmes at Italian level.
During the event, the book “La doppia carriera degli atleti: Una sfida culturale vincente” (Dual career of athletes: A winning cultural challenge) by Prof. Stefano Bastianon will be presented. As an Associate Professor of European Law at the University of Bergamo and an arbitrator at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), Prof. Bastianon offers unique legal and organizational perspectives of the Italian approach to dual career, and his book could be considered a benchmark for research and good practices for the benefit of athletes as students.
President Laura Capranica will present the activities of EAS and moderate a roundtable discussion between the Author and Filippo Bazzanella (University of Trento, Unisport-Italia Network), Francesca Pedrazzini-Pesce (Sport Office, Canton Ticino, Switzerland), Francesco Calvetti (Polytechnic of Milan), Marco Barla (Polytechnic of Turin).
Antonio Borgogni (University of Bergamo) will summarize the outcomes of the event to guide future activities towards the implementation of dual career.
