Romano Prodi will give his expert view on Italy’s and Europe’s future after Brexit and how Europe can keep a strong position between the US and China superpowers.

He served twice as Prime Minister of Italy from 1996 to 1998 and then from 2006 to 2008. He is considered the founder of the Italian centre-left and one of the most prominent and iconic figures of the so-called Second Republic. In September 2008, he was selected as president of the African Union–United Nations peacekeeping panel. He is currently serving as the United Nations Special Envoy for the Sahel. He was a postgraduate student at LSE.
