The Summer Program on Game Theory and Law has been jointly organized by the Schools of Law at the University of Insubria, the University of Milan, the Catholic University of Milan, Interuniversity Center for Game Theory and its Applications (CITG), and the “Centro di Cultura Scientifica Alessandro Volta". Public administration of “Comune di Campione d'Italia” (assessorato alla cultura) provided 10 fellowships for students, material support to the School and locations for lessons and seminars.
The school is open to graduate students, post docs, researchers and graduating students. Twenty-five participants are selected and admitted by the Scientific Committee, on the basis of their evaluation of the curricula and qualifications. Law experts work with interpretative issues that are discussed in the discipline, while game theory experts focus on the contributions that game theories may offer to the search for reasonable solutions and to develop criteria useful in decision-making among competing assumptions.
The School is structured around three broad topics that are developed through lessons in the morning session and tutorials or seminars in the afternoons:
Basic game theory models and solutions (Patrone, Cafagno, Denozza)
Theory of games with incomplete information and theory of dynamic and repeated games, applied to auctions and public procurement, liability, incomplete contracts, commons and corporate governance (Cafagno, Carraro, Costa, Denozza, Enriques, Gambaro, Mori, Toffoletto, Travi, Maugeri)
Theory of cooperative games applied to democratic rules, coalition, public choice and voting (Gambarelli, Valenciano, Viviani, Stanghellini, Fragnelli)
Scientific Committee: Maurizio Cafagno (University of Insubria), Francesco Denozza (University of Milan), Fioravante Patrone (University of Genova and Director of CITG) and Aldo Travi (Catholic University of Milan)
