For over forty years "Democrazia e diritto" (Democracy and Law) has been characterised by its vocation to cross the boundaries of political and juridical sciences in the discussion of issues related to both institutions and society. This feature makes of it a rare as well as precious case in the wide range of Italian scientific journals. As an extension of this long term commitment, the juridical approach will be at the core of the journal's publishing plan, also because it provides professionals in the legal field - such as magistrates, lawyers and academics - with a service that can be useful to link their disciplinary specialization , too often locked in its particularity, to relevant social themes which are needed to set a better theory and practice of law.
