I've just published a book chapter on Italian defense policy and the threat posed by jihadism. The tile of the chapter is: "Le implicazioni per la politica di difesa e lo strumento militare". Here the link to the e-book edited by S.M. Torelli and A.Varvelli: “L’Italia e la minaccia jihadista. Quale politica estera?” ISPI Epokè,2015, ISBN 978-88-98014-69-9. Here a video of the roundtable organized by the ISPI to present the book.
