L’Europa e la sfida del trasferimento di tecnologia dual-use all’Iran (fonte: RUSI)

Tackling the transfer of dual-use technologies to Iran has been on Europe’s radar since the administration of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad employed such technologies to develop Iran’s nuclear programme in the 2000s. In 2023, this issue is again at the top of the European agenda, but this time it encompasses Iran’s use of European, US and Japanese dual-use technologies for the development of its drone programme. Given that Iran has been delivering drones to Russia for its war against Ukraine – a country that is also a candidate to become a member of the EU – this issue is now a direct threat to European security.
