The Foundation’s main aim is to promote, develop and coordinate, principally at Courmayeur, research, studies, experiments and the organisation of meetings for further analysis and to publish factual knowledge concerning contemporary social issues of law and economics, with a particular focus on the international context.


Since 1990 the Foundation promotes and supports studies and research involving numerous national and international bodies. It has become a main actor on the Law, Society and Economics scene.

Three levels of areas of research have been defined in particular: International (in collaboration with various international bodies such as the UN and UNESCO), national (in collaboration with various ministries on issues of law, society and economics) and local (the creation of the “Laurent Ferretti” Mountain Observatory).
