Peter Conradi has worked in national and international journalism for more than three decades. As the Paris-based Europe Editor and former Foreign Editor of The Sunday Times, he can speak authoritatively on many aspects of international affairs. In his present role, he covers the big stories in France, Germany, Italy and beyond, trying to make sense of events across the continent. Now based in Paris, Peter has a strong interest in European politics and in the implications of Brexit. It helps that he speaks fluent German, French and Italian as well as Russian. Russia is an area of specialism and he was based there from 1988 to 1995, during which time he experienced at first hand the end of Communism and the break-up of the Soviet Union. These experiences informed his book, Who Lost Russia? How the World Entered a New Cold War, which was critically well received on both sides of the Atlantic. The New York Times called it ‘a smart, balanced analysis of the internal developments that have shaped Russia’s course since the break-up of the Soviet Union’. A Russian speaker, he continues to follow events in Russia and the broader region.
