Анализ соотношения внешнеполитического потенциала Италии и её национальных интересов в Ливии в 2011-2020 годах
The article analyses the extent to which Italy's course in Libya was successful during the 2011-2020 period. On the basis of political realism theory, national interests of the Italian Republic in Libya were studied and ranked, and the former’s foreign policy potential was assessed. The study used a correlation analysis of data that included information on Italy's resources and policies towards Libya. The study 1) highlighted the key interests of the Republic vis-à-vis Libya, 2) indicated Italy's inability to meet all needs due to extremely limited capacity, 3) confirmed the negative result of Italy's use of multilateral foreign policy instruments that do not promote its interests, and 4) established that it is more effective when peaceful bilateral instruments are used to maintain the Italian-Libyan dialogue.
