This lecture series honors the intellectual legacy of Stanley Hoffmann, Paul and Catherine Buttenwieser University Professor at Harvard University and founding chairman of CES, a prolific academic and brilliant lecturer, who left a deep mark on contemporary understandings of Europe and international relations.

The inaugural lecture was presented by Thomas Piketty, professor at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS) and the Paris School of Economics, who discussed his book Capital and Ideology.
