Aspen Institute Italia’s international programs adopt a strategic, long-term approach in addressing the most important issues on the global stage. The idea is to contribute to the European debate on the EU’s future and to the transatlantic debate on the future of the international system, in connection not only with such key countries as China, Russia and India but also with strategic geoeconomic areas such as the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Current programs explore geopolitical balances and their impact on the economic world, on climate change, on global health and on international relations, focusing in particular on the transatlantic relationship and on relations with countries of strategic importance for Europe and for Italy.
