Italy: an aspiring Mediterranean middle power wavering between bilateralism and multilateralism

Itália: uma potente potência média mediterrânea oscilando entre bilateralismo e multilateralismo

  • Lili Takács National University of Public Service (Hungary, Budapest)

Resumo

Italy managed to be an important actor in European affairs, its status as major power was several times called into question. Italy’s domestic political instability, the frequent government crises, severe economic and financial problems hinder the country’s goal to become a recognized middle power, especially in the Mediterranean region. Bilateral and multilateral tools are used alternately by government coalitions to carry out foreign policy which has been dominated by migration. Due to the afore-mentioned internal problems security and defence policy is not capable of supporting foreign policy to the necessary extent.
