The governance of Italy's Recovery and Resilience Plan: centred around PM Draghi
The Cabinet has adopted the Decree-Law 77/2021 establishing the governance of Italy’s Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR). The D-L establishes a multilevel governance for Italy’s PNRR, whereby the Prime Minister’s Office will be in charge of directing and coordinating the implementation of the PNRR, the Ministry of Economy and Finance will be in charge of monitoring and auditing the use of PNRR funds and reporting back to the European Commission, and national Ministries, Regional Governments, and City Governments will be in charge of the operational implementation of PNRR projects.
Overall, the governance of the PNRR is centred around Prime Minister Draghi and the bureaucracy within the Italian Treasury, with little say left to political parties, testifying to how profound Draghi’s sway over national politics is, also thanks to the support of the President of the Republic.
Telos A&S drafted an overview of the Decree-Law, together with our take on the long-term implications of the PNRR governance for the balance of powers between political Institutions and technocratic bodies.
