In 2018, on the occasion of the Italian presidency of the OSCE, Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano appointed Frattini as "Special representative of the OSCE presidency for the process of resolving the conflict in Transnistria". Among his credentials, Frattini said: "I have excellent relations with the Russian authorities, which undoubtedly played a fundamental role in the resolution [of the conflict] in Transnistria", in addition to reminding his own role in starting the process of liberalization of Schengen visas for Moldova.


Since 2014, Frattini is a member of the high court of sports justice of CONI, a court of last resort of the Italian sports system. He exercised his function as judge for the Parma case, decreeing in May 2014 that the Emilian soccer team could not play in the Europa League.

Frattini was a candidate to succeed to Anders Fogh Rasmussen for the post of NATO's secretary general in October 2014, but the post has been given at the beginning of the year to Jens Stoltenberg.

The European Court of Human Rights, in the Hirsi v. Italy ruling of 23 February 2012, condemned Italy for breach of the Convention, in particular with regard to Article 3 (prohibition of torture and inhuman and degrading treatment) and Article 4 of Protocol IV (prohibition of collective expulsions ); in this case, 200 Somali and Eritrean migrants had been rejected in Libya under the Benghazi agreement, without having the possibility of applying for asylum in Europe.

The reaction of Italian diplomacy, led by Frattini, to the revolts of the Arab spring and the Libyan civil war has been defined as "reactive" and "unrealistic" by the ISPI-IAI 2012 report edited by Alessandro Colombo and Ettore Greco. Like other Western countries, Italy has been completely taken aback by the Arab uprisings, and after a first moment at loss it has tried to frame the phenomenon in the reassuring discourse of democratization, reassured by the absence of Islamist symbols or anti-Western slogans. If the initial hesitations and the abrupt U-turn on the Qaddafi regime can constitute an element in common with other countries, Italy is the only international actor who long sought to "cling to its own imaginary role of mediator ", for which however lacked both power and necessary authority. With the evolution of the conflict, Frattini and Italian diplomacy have resorted to the "usual option to follow the stronger allies", facilitated in this by the "dilution of Franco-British unilateralism in the multilateral framework of NATO" and by the guarantee of participation American.

In December 2012, Frattini left Il Popolo della Libertà, later defining the leadership of the new Forza Italia as "extremists".

In 2012 Frattini received the honorary citizenship of the city of Tirana.

In 2014 he was appointed president of the "Institute of Eurasian Studies".


In November 2010, Frattini dubbed the WikiLeaks revelations as the "September 11 of Diplomacy" and stated that Julian Assange "wants to destroy the world".

In September 2010, on the occasion of the second visit of Qaddafi to Rome, Frattini declared "We have blocked the trafficking of illegal immigrants", despite the figures showing the continuation of migratory flows, and despite being mainly people entitled to forms of international protection. In February 2011, in a set-up changed by the Arab spring uprisings, Frattini claimed to want to "mobilize the Mediterranean countries" and the EU, through the Frontex agency, for patrols and refoulements. Yet again in August 2011, a boat with more than 100 migrants, intercepted at sea, was transferred to the Tunisian authorities, among the criticisms of NGOs and UNHCR.

On 22 October 2010 he declared to the Osservatore Romano that Judaism, Christianity and Islam should ally to fight atheism, which he defined, in the same interview, as a "perverse phenomenon" on a par with extremism .

Cooperation between the two coast guards started in May 2009, with protests from international groups for the protection of human rights, which criticized the return of migrants – including eligible asylum seekers – to Libya, which had not ratified the UN convention on refugees; the policy was subsequently suspended but not officially repudiated. Frattini had openly supported the policy of "respingimenti", contrary to the international humanitarian law principle of non-refoulement, describing such policy as a "due application of European rules", and stamping as "unworthy" the 2010 report by Amnesty International that highlighted the critical nature of this policy in light of international and European law.

In March 2009 Frattini condemned the Durban 2009 UN Conference against Racism, calling the final document as unacceptable, since it included anti-Israeli positions that emerged in the 2001 conference, which qualified Zionism as a form of racism.

In November 2009 he called "suggestive" Roberto Castelli's proposal for a constitutional amendment to include a cross in the Italian flag: "For now we wish to defend the right to keep the crucifix in our [school] classes, later we'll see if we can do more ". "There are nine European countries that have the cross in their flag, it's an absolutely normal proposal".

Reports on GameSpot showed he was seeking a Europe-wide ban on violent videogames. On 6 February 2007 – Safer Internet Day 2007 – Frattini recalled the need to protect children's rights, saying: "I am deeply concerned at this potential harm by the internet to children. This could involve people preying on them or children accessing racist, cruel or violent material."

At the start of 2007, Frattini backed an Italian push for EU support of a worldwide ban on the death penalty.

In April 2007 he has called for more powers to be given to Eurojust, with the power to initiate prosecutions with a European Public Prosecutor.

In 2007, Frattini was censured by the European Parliament for its statements against the freedom of movement of people in the EU. In the interview granted and published 2 November 2007 Frattini stressed that to respond to the security problem «... what is to be done is simple: you go to a nomad camp in Rome, for example on the Christopher Columbus, and to those who are there you ask" what's your life? ". If all year "I do not know", you take it and send it back to Romania. This is how the European directive works: simple and without escape. » The motion of censure, presented by the European left, was voted to a large extent: 306 yes, 86 no and 37 abstentions.

Frattini was also afforded one of the five seats as vice-president of the European Commission. In the 2007 tax return, his Italian tax base was zero because his income as a European Commissioner was taxed in Brussels.

As European Commissioner he promoted a "visa facilitation agreement between the European Community and the Russian Federation" (2007/340/EC: Council Decision of 19 April 2007), which however led to the expulsion of countless citizens Europeans domiciled for a long time in Russia on the basis of annual visas, which due to the introduction by the agreement of a limit of stay in the territory of maximum 90 days out of 180 were forced to leave the country, not being able to reside on the spot on the basis of unlimited annual visas as happened in the past.
