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 has been fully involved in the implementation of this plan, along with other actors, including trade unions, NGOs and private sectors.
There is a separate goal which encourages the enhancement of women within national police forces and the Armed Forces.
