NEW YORK, 8 March 2016 - Eurasia Group is proud to welcome the Honorable Enrico Letta, Italy's 55th prime minister and dean of the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences Po in Paris, as a senior advisor to the firm. An expert on European economic and political affairs, Letta will partner with Eurasia Group to offer strategic insights into the challenges facing the region.
"The politics of Europe continue to be one of the major risks facing the world," said Ian Bremmer, Eurasia Group's president. "Enrico's regional knowledge and expertise will be unparalleled to help our clients navigate such uncertainty."
Letta served as Italy's 55th prime minister and spent more than two decades in Italian and European politics, holding posts including minister for EU affairs, minister for industry, commerce and crafts, undersecretary of state to the prime minister and member of the European Parliament. Letta has also written extensively on the European Union and EU enlargement and managed the think tank AREL (Agenzia di Ricerche e Legislazione) from 1993 to 2013.
"Europe's recent crises have proven that regional instability now has global implications," said Letta. "I'm pleased to join Eurasia Group, the leader in political risk analysis, to help its clients anticipate and respond to these market-impacting forces."
In addition to his work with Eurasia Group, Letta is president of the Italy-Asean Association and co-chair of the Pontignano Conference of the British Council.
