In Conversation with US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

The US Centre hosted US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an evening of conversation with our Director, Professor Peter Trubowitz. The discussion ranged over a wide variety of topics including Brexit, the Democratic Party and trade relations with China. 






Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) is the 52nd Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, having made history in 2007 when she was elected the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House. Now in her third term as Speaker, Pelosi made history again in January 2019 when she regained her position second-in-line to the presidency, the first person to do so in more than 60 years. Speaker Pelosi is the highest ranking woman in American history and the most powerful Democrat in Washington.
