The Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies is Cornell's hub for global thinking and action. From Bangkok to Bogota, from Kolkata to Kyiv, Einaudi’s global research helps us all make sense of the world.
Global Research Priorities
The Einaudi Center's faculty, postdocs, visiting scholars, and students cross disciplinary lines to tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems. Global research priorities are centerwide focal points for our research funding, events, and experts' media and policy commentary. We focus each year on issues where the stakes for ordinary citizens are high and informed public voices about the conditions that shape our lives are critically needed.
Top Priority in 2024: Democratic Threats
Global challenges to democracy and evolving democratic norms
Global inequalities and advocacy for access and accountability
