L'Italia e la trasformazione dello scenario internazionale


Last year was a particularly problematic one for Italian foreign policy, caught between the progressive deterioration of the domestic political scene, the debt crisis and the consequent weakening of Italy's position in the international prestige and power hierarchy, and the political upheaval in nearby areas, including the collapse of the Qaddafi regime and the civil war in Syria. The authors examine this bumpy road and, while looking for possible ways out, highlights other complicating factors: the tears in the international community's multilateral fabric, uncertainty in Europe and Italy's search for an external anchor.

Introduction to the 2012 volume of the yearbook La politica estera dell'Italia, Bologna, il Mulino, May 2012.
