The Samuel Pufendorf Endowed Chair
About the Pufendorf Chair
Samuel Pufendorf (1632-1694) was a German legal scholar and theologian who was directly appointed to a professorship when Lund University was founded in 1666. He was a pioneer of modern humanism and international law. In 2002, a donation to establish a Pufendorf chair was made jointly by Torsten Söderberg and Ragnar Söderberg Foundations. The chair holder should work in the spirit of Samuel Pufendorf and promote the establishment of a global peaceful order. The Pufendorf chair is held by a professor at Lund University in the areas of economics, politics or law for a time period of four years.
