Global Research Priorities
At the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, we work together to fulfill Cornell’s powerful mandate to engage with and transform the world. Our faculty, postdocs, visiting scholars, and students cross disciplinary lines to tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems. We focus on issues and topics where the stakes for ordinary citizens are high and informed public voices about the conditions that shape our lives are critically needed.
Here are some of the Einaudi Center’s top research themes and the cross-cutting teams creating new research paths.
Researching, teaching, and building for a world on the move
Global challenges to democracy and evolving democratic norms
Interdisciplinary Research Teams
Economic and social growth, global governance, and the law
Rights and risks for global digital networks
