In the last 15 years Italy’s role in the international cooperation and development arena has progressively declined, both financially and in terms of contribution to the global development debate.

The creation of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (with Law 125/2014 and operational since 1 January 2016) represents an important turning point in Italy’s involvement in the international development arena.

The Agency, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, is responsible for the identification of operational tools and strategic partnerships and, more broadly aims at ensuring the effectiveness of the Italian cooperation.

The University of Rome Tor Vergata has always accorded a central role to International cooperation and is at the forefront of the internationalization process of Italian academic institutions.

Within this frame work, Tor Vergata is launching The Italian Centre for International Development – ICID. ICID is designed to promote state-of-the art research on the development challenges facing the global community and to provide a training ground for young researchers and practitioners.

As one of its first public events, ICID is convening a workshop on the role and perspectives of the newly created Italian Agency for Development Cooperation.
