Dr. Erik Jones, Director of European and Eurasian Studies at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced and International Studies, joins Dr. Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Jim Townsend for a rundown of what’s happening in Italian politics.

Dr. Jones explains what is likely to happen next and what the options are for Conte and Salvini going forward.
