Crone, Michelle A.
MetadataShow full item record
Since its founding in 1814 as a police force in the Kingdom of Sardinia, the Italian Carabinieri has demonstrated success. To meet contemporary security challenges, the Italian Carabinieri has adapted its police and military capacities to address both internal and external threats while working together with the European Gendarmerie Forces (EGF), the European Union (EU), and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Because of the magnitude of certain contemporary security challenges, specifically the migrant crisis and organized crime, Italy has continued to struggle with border control due to the country's long coastlines and relatively close proximity to other nations. This thesis highlights the role of the Italian Carabinieri's historical success and analyzes its contributions to EGF, EU, and NATO effectiveness in addressing contemporary security challenges.
