We welcome thinkers and doers with an open mind.

The School of Transnational Governance was established in 2017 as part of the European University Institute in Florence. In the cradle of the Renaissance we train, educate and inspire the current and next generation of global leaders through our Master’s Programme, Executive Education, Fellowships and High Level Policy Dialogues.

At our School theory meets practice across disciplines, generations and geographies. Our base is European, but our reach is global. For us governance goes beyond state boundaries and beyond the public-private divide. We provide a platform where transnational policy actors across politics, business, civil society, media and academia meet. We are here for anyone with an open and independent mind, for thinkers and for doers. Learn from and exchange with some of the best teachers, trainers and policy-makers from around the world.

For us the goal of public policy is to bring out the best in people.

Our mission

Let’s disrupt the study of governance, constructively. Sounds ambitious?

We convene transnational policy shapers to gain new perspectives.

Attracting the best faculty, students, course and event participants we build a hub for innovation in public policy education and training.

We believe the social sciences can own the words laboratory and experimentation. Together we dissect, experiment and create.

Our vision

We aim to contribute to the creation of a world in which policy-making at all levels is at the service of all people. At the EUI School of Transnational Governance, we aspire to change governance frameworks. We’d love you to take part in our journey.

Our values

Our roots are European, but our values are universal: Freedom, Democracy and Sustainability - Dignity, Dialogue and Respect - Diversity, Equality and Inclusiveness

Our purpose

Many of the world’s crucial problems transcend national borders. Existing governance frameworks are often unfit for purpose. Our purpose is to improve governance around the world. Join our quest to make sense of complexity.
