Italy’s Right Turn: What to Expect From Giorgia Meloni
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 addresses vital issues affecting the European continent, U.S.-European relations, and Europe’s ties with the rest of the world. We investigate European approaches to critical global issues: digital transformation, climate, migration, global governance. We also examine Europe’s relations with Russia and Eurasia, China and the Indo-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Our program activities cover a wide range of topics, from the role of NATO, the European Union and the OSCE to European energy security, trade disputes, challenges to democracy, and counter-terrorism. 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.
