About this book

Introduction

This book analyses the foreign policy of Silvio Berlusconi, Italian media tycoon and politician who served as Prime Minister of Italy in four governments. The authors examine the Italian position in the international arena and its foreign policy tradition, as well as Berlusconi’s general political stance, Berlusconi’s foreign policy strategies and the impact of those strategies in Italy. Given that Berlusconi is considered a populist leader, the volume considers his foreign policy as an instance of populist foreign policy – an understudied but increasingly relevant topic.

Emidio Diodato is Associate Professor of International Politics and Political Science in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at University ‘per Stranieri’ of Perugia, Italy.

Federico Niglia is Adjunct Professor of International History in the Department of Political Sciences of the LUISS Guido Carli in Rome, Italy.
