The EU, at the proposal of the Italian government, should designate a special appointee to use all instruments of national and international power against the connection between modern slavery, human trafficking and illegal immigration.
Italy should adopt certain courses of action that must be concerted with the EU, the UN, the states of origin and transit of migrants as well as the flag states of NGO ships, shifting from national to multinational organizational and legal dimensions.
Italy, stretched out in the Mediterranean, looked like a sleeping giant. Two facts intervened to sound the alarm: the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the Right leading a new national government. It was immediately apparent that a different wind was blowing, a broader and more pragmatic vision.
In the new episode of "The Interview," SILVIA ROBERTO meets Admiral Nicola DE FELICE, Senior Fellow at the Centro Studi Machiavelli and author of the book "Stop the Invasion - The Reasons for the Naval Blockade". She talks with him about the many problems related to illegal immigration and possible solutions to be implemented.
If Italy agreed to let all NGO ships land in its ports, thinking then to redistribute them in Europe, it would on the one hand see the vast majority of landed people remaining in Italy and on the other increase the flow of illegals driven by the idea of easy relocation to other European countries.
Today "naval blockade" must translate as "naval interdiction," embedded in a more complex approach to counter human trafficking. Salvini's reproposed security decrees can be seen as complementary to the naval interdiction operation.
Nel Dossier n. 37 Nicola De Felice discute le linee politico-strategica secondo cui l'Italia deve riorganizzare la propria Difesa, alla luce tanto della guerra russo-ucraina quanto del previsto aumento delle spese militari.
Part of managing a crisis is preventing a conflict through political strategies of deterrence aimed at containing the confrontation itself. Only with this capability can Italy consider itself a free, independent, true nation.
Lessons learned from Ukraine for operations conducted by the Italian Armed Forces in an international theater of operations: the tasks that the Carabinieri Corps upholds for local security become essential.
