1. LEGAL PROVISIONS FOR MANDATORY RECOGNITION BY MOTHERS OF THEIR CHILDREN, FOR DETERMINING QUESTIONS OF PATERNITY AND UNIFYING THE WELFARE SERVICES DEALING WITH ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN
Disposizioni relative all’obbligatorietà del riconoscimento materno, alla ricerca della paternità e all’unificazione dei servizi di assistenza per i figli illegittimi
Report of the ordinary Study Committee on the reform of civil legislation (*) - Bill proposed by the on. Bianca Bianchi - 1949 - (typescript) - 32 pages

PRESENTATION
After strengthening its own organizational structure by forming the various study committees, the CNPDS, starting with this Report its activity as a publisher, gave a greater constructive impetus to its work in the field of studies undertaken on social problems and those arising from the exigencies of the reborn Italian democratic society. The starting-point was provided on this occasion by a study of the Bianchi Bill. Although the principle of mandatory recognition by mothers of their children born out of wedlock was received with some perplexity (contrasting in fact with the policy aimed at controlling abortion), a welcome was given to the inclusion of the institution in the parliamentary process, representing a practical application of the principles of the Constitution.

21 PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR THE REFORM OF ARBITRATION

Organized by the CNPDS (*) under the auspices of the Italian Ministry for
External Affairs
Four-language edition in French, English, Italian and German
Ed. Giuffrè - Milan -1955 - 429 pages + 16 illustrations

PRESENTATION
Following the basic theme of the Conference, the various scholars put forward the experience in diverse juridical systems: the resulting analysis suggested, through a comparative examination, the need for unification on an international plane of the rules of arbitration; this may be seen in the framework of the trend towards unification of private law. The Conference advocated the removal of limits to the right to derogate from the domestic courts by agreement in favour of arbitration abroad, as a solution integrated with domestic jurisdiction rather than substituting for it.

CONTENTS
Subjects, reports, communications and proposals: Studies and proposals for a uniform law on arbitration (E. Minoli) - The unification of rules of private international law concerning arbitration (L. Marmo-A. Migliazza) - Bases procesuales para la uniformacion internacional del arbitraje de derecho privato (N.

PRESENTATION
Since the early months of 1959, the Centro nazionale di prevenzione e difesa sociale promoted a vast series of studies, organized into working parties, with the aim of «analysing the social consequences of technological progress, and at the same time the social conditions in post-War Italy in which have occurred the important changes in the field of industrial production» having shown «that these changes, whether technological or organizational have assumed in the last few years a rhythm and importance such as to bring about profound changes in manufacturing and society and open up a range of problems of an entirely new type.» The work of the Study Committees of the International Congress on technological progress and the Italian changing society was carried out over some eighteen months. The Scientific Committee of the Congress - composed of scholars versed in disciplines which seemed most disparate but nevertheless achieved co-ordination in a most fruitful manner, given the general aim of the Congress - split the work among various Sub-Committees: socio­logical, economical, juridical and medical-bio-psychological. This first volume contains the Reports and communications which tackle the problems having a strictly economic content, from different standpoints: in the fields of market, commerce, banking, revenue, investments, free and planned production and also co-ordination between the banking institutions.
