Centro Studi di Politica Internazionale, Italy

CeSPI, the Centre for Studies in International Policies,is an independent non-profit organisation established in 1985 which conducts policy-oriented studies and research. Among its founders the President of the Italian Republic, Mr Giorgio Napolitano, who was a member of CeSPI’s Board of Chairmen until a few years ago. Its headquarter is in Rome, in one ancient building in the city centre. The Centre carries out research, consultancy, training and information dissemination activities with respect to certain key international relations issues. More specifically, CeSPI focuses mainly on its four well-established research areas:

  • International cooperation, development finance and peacebuilding
  • Decentralised cooperation, territorial partnerships and local development
  • Human mobility, transnationalism and co-development
  • Migration policies and social models

The research conducted within the scope of these areas feeds into an analysis of European Union external actions and Italian foreign policy thus giving rise to two further areas:

  • An open Europe – concerning borders, territorial cooperation in the cohesion policy, enlargement and neighbourhood, and global projection;
  • Italy from a global perspective – exploring what international role the country should play and what foreign economic policies it should adopt.
