Italy’s Right Turn: What to Expect From Giorgia Meloni

October 12, 202224:02

In this edition of Wilson Center NOW, we are joined by Federico Borsari, Leonardo Fellow with the Transatlantic Defense and Security Program at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) and a NATO 2030 Global Fellow. He discusses the success of the right-wing coalition in Italy’s 2022 general election, setting the stage for the most conservative government in decades. Borsari also provides background on Giorgia Meloni, expected to become the next prime minister of Italy.

Global Europe Program

The Global Europe Program is focused on Europe’s capabilities, and how it engages on critical global issues.  We investigate European approaches to critical global issues. We examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our initiatives include “Ukraine in Europe” – an examination of what it will take to make Ukraine’s European future a reality.  But we also examine the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE, Europe’s energy security, transatlantic trade disputes, and challenges to democracy. The Global Europe Program’s staff, scholars-in-residence, and Global Fellows participate in seminars, policy study groups, and international conferences to provide analytical recommendations to policy makers and the media.  Read more
