As part of this report on Italy and its role in the future of European defence and Mediterranean security, Friends of Europe and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) conducted a survey exploring how sectoral stakeholders in Italy, Europe and beyond perceive the nation’s position in regional and global undertakings. The results of the survey complement findings from in-depth interviews that provide analysis and recommendations for the Italian and EU leader-ship. This survey consisted of 17 questions on topics pertaining to major priorities for Italy’s security and defence cooperation frameworks; threat perceptions; relations with NATO and the EU; Italy’s role in the Mediterranean region; and future military and security cooperation scenarios. About 200 security and defence stakeholders took part in the survey over a two-month period. Participants were asked to indicate the sector in which they work, country of origin and residence.
