    The security situation in Italy remains in line with other European Countries. There are no specific threats against the UN in Italy.

    Considering the ongoing defeat of Daesh in the war territories, the trend in the short and mid-term will most likely continue to see the return of the militants to the countries of origins, including Italy.

    Insurrectional anarchism remains sufficiently organized on the Italian territory, as it has been present for many years.

    This movement could target the UN in the context of its anti-capitalism / anti-western narrative. 2) Whilst UN staff continue to be victims of minor crime such as street robbery and apartment break-

    ins, the infrequency of attacks and random nature of locations do not indicate that UN staff are at an elevated risk in comparison to residents or tourists in Italy.

    3) Italy’s national territory is exposed to a broader range of natural hazards than any other European country. The vulnerability of its population and built environment is often severe and has in some cases been exacerbated by human activities.
