The latest issue of Collection of Policy Papers propose answers on building safe community in Serbia, the position of the police in the new Criminal Procedure Code, and the role of ethics in policing.
The intention of this text is to analyse whether the proposed reforms will suit the defence needs of Italy, and the effects that these reforms will have on the security and defence strategy of the European Union (EU) and the United States. After this analysis, the paper focuses on an aspect that seems to have been forgotten by the proposal of Admiral Di Paola: the restructuring of the Carabinieri as a response to the internal security threats.
The reform of the Italian military forces proposed by Defence Minister Admiral Di Paola aims at creating an army that is more capital oriented with a decreased human factor. The proposal will be beneficial for the development of the Italian forces in general and will not affect its allies. The only exception is connected to the Italian Navy that, due to cuts in the defence budget, will be extensively affected and may not be capable of maintaining its current standards.
The proposal of the Defence Minister focuses only on external threats and does not take into account the internal security threats that Italy is facing. It seems that Di Paola overlooked the necessity of restructuring the Carabinieri - gendarmes who are under his control, and who counter fight the internal threats.
