67 Avenue de Tervueren

Federiga Bindi provides, for the first time, an in-depth analysis of Italy’s role within the European Union (EU) in this inaugural volume of a book series published jointly by the Brookings Institution Press and the Scuola Superiore della Pubblica Amministrazione (Italian National School of Public Administration, or SSPA). Italy and the European Union relates in detail the historical, cultural, and sociological factors that have led to Italy’s incomplete “Europeanization,” or full integration, within the EU. It also brings the reader up-to-date on the steps taken by the country’s leaders to improve Italy’s standing and become a more effective member in the organization it helped to found.


Federiga Bindi is a senior fellow with the Center for Transatlantic Relations at Johns Hopkins University’s SAIS, Washington D.C. A Jean Monnet Chair in European Political Integration and founding director of the European Centre of Excellence at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Among her previous books is The Foreign Policy of the European Union: Assessing Europe’s Role in the World (1st edition 2010, 2nd revised edition 2012). Nowadays she is director of the institute for the Italian culture in Brussels.
