Edgar de Picciotto International Prize awarded to Saskia Sassen

The Edgar de Picciotto International Prize for 2020 has been awarded to Saskia Sassen. She joins a very impressive set of previous winners – Amartya Sen, Saul Friedländer, Paul Krugman and Joan Wallach Scott.

The Edgar de Picciotto International Prize was created as a tribute and token of thanks to Mr Edgar de Picciotto. His generous donation of CHF 20 million enabled the Graduate Institute to finance a considerable part of the Student House. Mr de Picciotto and his family have greatly supported and participated in the realisation of the Institute’s mission by facilitating the hosting of students from all over the world.

The Edgar de Picciotto International Prize – awarded every two years and worth CHF 100,000 – is intended to reward an internationally renowned academic whose research has contributed to enhancing the understanding of global challenges and whose work has influenced policy-makers.
