Thursday 5 October
Mexican President-elect Vicente Fox will speak at the London School of Economics and Political Science on Thursday 5 October.
Señor Fox, elected on 2 July this year, will speak on Introducing Mexico's 21st century to an audience of LSE students, staff and invited guests from the political, business and diplomatic circles. The lecture will be chaired by Professor Anthony Giddens, Director of LSE.
LSE currently has around 60 Mexican students, mostly postgraduates, and an active Mexican Society at the School, plus more than 500 alumni based in Mexico.
This lecture, organised with the support of the Mexican Embassy, follows an event in February this year, organised by the Mexican Society, which brought together political party representatives Amalia Garcia (PRD), Luis Felipe Bravo Mena (PAN), and Dulce Maria Sauri (PRI) on the same platform for the first time for a live pre-election debate.
Professor Giddens said: "It is great honour to welcome Señor Fox and to hear his thoughts on the future of Mexico at what is an exciting time for Latin America".
The lecture takes place in the Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street, on Thursday 5 October at 5.30pm
