Visiting Professors

To further promote scientific exchange and international networking, PRIF implemented a program for visiting professors. The program is aimed at internationally renowned experts in the fields of international relations and peace and conflict research. 

During their stay, the program offers visiting professors the opportunity to gain insights into PRIF's research, to participate in internal debates and events, to present their own research and to discuss it with PRIF researchers. 

The program aims to further strengthen PRIF's international profile and visibility and to open up new opportunities for cooperation. Candidates are selected by the Executive Board on the basis of an in-house call.

PRIF welcomed Matthew Evangelista from Cornell University as the first visiting professor in 2019. Mariana Budjeryn from Harvard University also came to the institute in 2019.


Visiting Researchers Program: Another opportunity for scientists to get to know PRIF during a guest stay is our Visiting Researchers Program, for which they can apply freely.
