Commentary

This revised Action Plan counts as Italy's third to date. Italy has no recent history of conflict, hence the focus is on international operations and  humanitarian efforts.

Civil Society

Civil Society has been fully involved in the implementation of this plan, along  with other actors, including trade unions, NGOs and private sectors. 

Women Peacekeeping

There is a separate goal which encourages the enhancement of women within national  police forces and the Armed Forces.
