IPA’s Global Strategy Group (GSG) is a team of former officers from the U.S. Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, Commerce, Justice, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the FBI, and the private sector. They are a team of experts in foreign affairs, global security, interagency and intergovernmental cooperation. Emphasizing a comprehensive, whole-of-government approach, the GSG provides solutions by designing, planning and executing scenario-supported wargames and experiments addressing complex emerging security challenges.

The GSG has produced and delivered numerous reports and handbooks on best practices for civil-military, interagency, and host-country cooperation. The topics range from conflict prevention and mitigation to post-conflict stabilization and reconstruction. The team has also provided extensive support to NATO in moving toward the implementation of the Alliance’s Strategic Concept.

Preliminary results indicate that the alliance led by the far-right Brothers of Italy party won a majority of votes in yesterday's national election. This win will mean that Giorgia Meloni will be Italy's first female prime minister and this will be the first Italian government led by the far right since the 1940s.

The BBC put together useful information regarding the main players in Italy's elections, including Giorgia Meloni, and how elections work in Italy.
