EI Director Richard Bellamy moves on

3 July 2013

Professor Richard Bellamy, founding Director of the UCL European Institute and Professor of Political Science in the UCL School of Public Policy, has been appointed Director of the Max Weber programme at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence.

At the EUI, he shall also be a Professor in Social and Political Sciences, with an affiliation to the Law and History departments. He will take up this position on 1 May 2014, having been granted exceptional leave from UCL in order to do so. The Max Weber Programme is the largest post doctoral programme in the human and social sciences in Europe and possibly internationally, selecting 42 fellows every year from all over the world from more than a 1000 applicants.

This will be Richard Bellamy’s third period at the EUI, having been a researcher there from 1980-82 and a Jean Monnet Fellow in 2000-2001. From September 2013 to 30 April 2014 he will be based at the Hanse Wissenschaft Kolleg in Delmenhorst, Germany, where he will be completing his Leverhulme funded project on A European Republic of States.

Richard's successor at the helm of the European Institute will be Mary Fulbrook, Professor of German History at UCL.
