Centro Studi Internazionali
The Rome-based Centre for International Studies (Ce.S.I. - Centro Studi Internazionali) was founded by Prof Andrea Margelletti in 2004. Since then, Prof Margelletti has been the Chairman of the Institute. The research activity of the Institute is based on the Open Source Intelligence methodology (OSINT) and is focused on topics such as security, defence, terrorism and counter-terrorism. The areas specifically covered by the Institute include Maghreb, Sub-Saharan Africa, wide Middle East, Balkans, ex-Soviet space and Asia. The Institute works not only with European private clients, but also with Italian institutional counterparts, such as the House of Representatives, the Senate, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defence, the single Armed Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies.
