The Permanent Observatory on International Issues
The Eurispes has set up the Permanent Observatory on International Issues, entrusting its presidency to Ambassador Giampiero Massolo, President of Fincantieri and ISPI and former General Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and General Director of the Department of Information for Security.
The Observatory can rely on the support of a Scientific Committee comprised of authoritative representatives from academia, institutions, and civil society who have joined the project and contributed their expertise in various fields of action.
The Observatory’s goal is to study the evolution of the international relations system, particularly current trends in relations between leading state and non-state actors. Particular emphasis is placed on evaluating the Italian national interest and redefining and promoting it as circumstances change, thus emphasising the issues to be addressed from an Italian perspective.
The Observatory proposes conducting studies and analyses in collaboration with government agencies and leading Italian and international research institutes and universities. Through periodic meetings and comparisons, the Observatory will conduct in-depth thematic studies of current and prospective interest.
