Intesa SanPaolo Visiting Professor Chair

Bank and University, together to chart paths of growth for young people

Prof. Pierre Brunet is the second Intesasanpaolo Visiting Professor Chair in Global Governance, following Prof. Paolo Vineis.

In the second semester of the 2022-23 academic year, Prof. Pierre Brunet will be the holder of the "Intesa Sanpaolo Visiting Professor Chair in Global Governance", offering teaching in the area of "Rights of Nature for Global Environmental Constitutionalism" (Find more information in the Syllabus)

The chair - born from the collaboration with the University of Rome Tor Vergata - is established within the Bachelor of Arts in Global Governance degree course in English.

The Intesasanpaolo Visiting Professor Chair in Global Governance 

The Chair established with the support of Intesasanpaolo aims to deepen knowledge in the field of Global Governance in order to stimulate vision and awareness, which are necessary skills for experts in global processes.
The Chair envisages the appointment of Visiting Professors to teach a 42-hour course (6 credits), thus facilitating the exchange of ideas, experiences and points of view, as well as networking between different universities.
The Visiting Professor is a highly qualified professor, scholar or researcher active at other universities, including international ones, who is called upon to contribute to the development of the course with lectures, seminars and research projects.
The succession of Visiting Professors increases the attractiveness of the chair and provides students with unique and innovative learning opportunities, the result of continuous exchanges and comparisons with the holder of the chair. It also reveals the strong commitment of the University and the Bank to the specific area of teaching and research.

Teaching in the Chair in Rights of Nature for Global Environmental Constitutionalism 

Starting in March 2023, the course Rights of Nature for Global Environmental Constitutionalism will be taught by Prof. Pierrre Brunet, Professor of Public Law at the Université Paris 1 (Panthéon Sorbonne).
Prof. Brunet's work focuses on legal theory, constitutional theory, constitutional law (including comparative law) and administrative law (he has written columns on administrative contract law for the Revue des contrats), animal law and environmental law.
His lectures will discuss key issues in global environmental constitutionalism from theoretical and empirical point of view, describe and interpret key study design issues in rights of nature, discuss the explicit and implicit legal theories that underlie the main positions, appreciate the need for a multidisciplinary approach, spanning socio-cultural approaches, anthropology and politics, for understanding and researching global environmental constitutionalism.

Bank and University, together to chart paths of growth for young people 

This chair enriches and increases the excellence of the didactic proposal of the University of Rome Tor Vergata. In order to reinforce the value and prestige of the chair, the Bank also wished to support the University in recruiting scholars and researchers of high scientific standing.

The partnership bears witness to the mutual desire to channel commitment into the common objective of charting paths of growth for young people and the community. Together, in fact, the Bank and the University believe that knowledge and academic research are the common good that reduces inequalities and offers social development, a good that should be open to all.

For us, investing in support for study and research that creates employability is always the goal, in order to offer our young people the opportunity to cultivate their talents and prepare themselves for a particularly competitive labour market.
