In memoriam: Katarina West

A- A A+

It is with great sadness that the EUI communicates the death of our alumna Katarina West, on 21 April 2021.

Katarina completed her PhD in the Department of Social and Political Sciences under the supervision of Professor Philip Alston and co-supervision of Professor Thomas Risse. She defended her thesis, entitled The Expansion of Humanitarian NGOs, on 29 September 2000.

Katarina had become a novelist, after a career that included teaching and journalism, and lived in the Tuscan countryside near Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. She is survived by her husband Luciano and her son Emanuele.

The EUI extends its deepest condolences to her family and friends for their loss, and its solidarity with them at this painful time.
