l'Italia al voto: confronto sulla politica estera dei principali partiti nazionali
The campaign for Italian elections scheduled on 25 September has focussed on issues such as the economy, jobs, taxation, energy, security and migration, topics that political parties consider most relevant for the electorate. Italy's foreign policy, including its international positioning and strategic alliances, have remained on the margins of the debate. For this reason, the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) will host an open discussion between representatives of Italy's largest political parties specifically focused on foreign policy. The initiative stems from an appreciation of the close relationship between foreign and domestic politics and is born from the conviction that the Italian electorate needs to be informed on how political forces propose to shape their policies with respect, for example, to the role of Italy in Europe, in NATO and with regard to the main challenges that characterise the current international system. The public event will be opened by IAI's President, Ferdinando Nelli Feroci, and moderated by IAI's Director, Nathalie Tocci. Representatives from Italy's six largest parties will be present to discuss their respective foreign policy agendas.
