Strengthening the UN Security System. The Role of Italy and the EU


The United Nations (UN), and the Security Council in particular, have the primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. However, the changing nature of global threats to security and the increasing demands for intervention in diverse crisis scenarios has led to recognition of the need for restructuring the UN security architecture and enhancing its operational capabilities. The papers gathered together in this volume and the conference report assess the contributions of Italy and the European Union to the functioning and reform of the UN security system and put forward policy recommendations aimed at increasing their role in the definition and implementation of the international security agenda.
