JCU President Franco Pavoncello was interviewed by the international media on the coalition government recently formed between Italy’s 5 Star Movement and its ex-foes, the Democratic Party. On August 28, Italian President Sergio Mattarella gave Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte a mandate to create a new government — this time without the Northern League led by Salvini. The new government was sworn in on September 5.

A professor of Political Science and leading analyst of Italian politics, Dr. Pavoncello’s work has appeared in, among others, the American Political Science Review, the British Journal of Political Science, Asian Studies, and World Affairs. He is also a well-known media commentator on Italian affairs, a contributor to major international newspapers such as the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune, and he appears regularly on radio and television networks including CNN, BBC, Reuters Press and TV, and many other media organizations.
