EUROPEAN FOREIGN POLICY SCORECARD 2015

Italy

Italy was not as high on the leader board as last year. Given considerable changes in government, foreign policy was less driven at high level. It was still rated a leader four times, remaining engaged in Afghanistan and Libya, supporting TTIP negotiations and pushing for a collective European privacy policy.
