In 2013, S. Musumeci and E. Ciclet formed the RE­-THINK NOW initiative because they wanted to address the particular need for better understanding the operation of our society.

RE­-THINK NOW | RESEARCH FOR A BETTER SOCIETY is based on our interest in reflecting on reality and in connecting the dots.


We feel the need for unveiling the logic and essence of what is going on around and within us.

Our approach is characterized by a polymathic mindset, which means that we yearn for getting knowledge together and getting more knowledgeable.

We intend to improve ourselves without sclerotizing our minds. We intend to go deeper, depth perhaps being going up or sliding on the surface.


Our interdisciplinary attitude has always impregnated our entrepreneurial lives. Here are some highlights of our background:

E. Ciclet held a seminar at The University of Buckingham on the destruction of law, and published an article on the Limits of EU Power in Economic Affairs. Also, she wrote the article When Law Loses Its Legitimacy.



  • Ciclet, (2013) ‘Does the Lisbon Treaty Effectively Limit the Power of the European Union’, Economic Affairs, 33(2), pp. 246–256.

The research article highlights crucial and technical issues pertaining to the limitation of European Union (EU) Power. It evidences how the EU has the possibility to act in an arbitrary manner.

  • Ciclet, (2015) When Law Loses Its Legitimacy. RE­-THINK NOW | RESEARCH FOR A BETTER SOCIETY.  (NOTARISED DOCUMENT : proof of existence and time stamp) .

When Law Loses Its Legitimacy corresponds to the need for exposing existent issues, which however may not be easy to detect but have a considerable impact on society. More precisely, the essay aims to get at the core of what illegitimate law is.

This essay’s warns the regulator and individuals against illegitimate forms of law, notably law without limits. Significantly, alarm is not taken based on theoretical possibilities, but it rests on examples of regulatory instruments.
