Italy has a new government since February 16, 2021, and Italian hopes are invested in one person: Prime Minister Mario Draghi, the former President of the European Central Bank (2011-2019). While his term is set for one year, expectations are high that he can bring Italy back on a viable trajectory.
In his acceptance speech, Draghi stressed indispensable reform efforts in three areas: the tax system, public administration, and the healthcare system. Moreover, and interacting with this core reform project, he emphasized the urgency to implement the European Recovery Plan successfully.
This seminar will examine what the success or failure of Draghi's proposed reforms could mean not only for Italy but for the European Union.
