Luigi Einaudi Chair

Accepting nominations for AY2020-2021

Luigi Einaudi Chair in European and International Studies was established by the Cornell Institute for European Studies with support from the Italian Government and the university in 1987 to honor Luigi Einaudi, first President of the Italian Republic, and his many contributions to the fields of economics, political science, modern European history and European integration.

The Chair has brought distinguished European scholars working in fields related to Einaudi's interests to the Cornell campus to teach and lecture.

The Luigi Einaudi Chair was the first at a major American University to be named after a statesman of modern Europe. As well as pointing to Einaudi's signal contributions to the revival of European democracy after World War II, it strengthens and expands cultural ties between the United States and Europe.

From 1987-2001, individual scholars occupied the Luigi Einaudi Chair. Beginning in 2001-02, the structure underwent some changes, with the Chair supporting seminars, themed events, and shorter-term visiting scholars rather than bringing an individual professor to campus.

Nominations for AY 2020-2021 are now open. Learn how to nominate HERE.
