  • "There was something magical about the Institute, the people and the beautiful and serene campus, which I cannot quite explain, but it provided exactly the right mixture of quiet surrounding for research and opportunities to get together, consult and exchange ideas."

    Eyal Benvenisti

    University of Cambridge


  • "IAS was my home away from home for four times in two turbulent decades. It was a haven of tranquility, reflection, camaraderie and sheer beauty. Cooperation within my immediate groups was a source of abundant inspiration, but what made the IAS experience unique was the presence and influence of other groups. In my mind, the IAS comes closest to the ideal community of scholars."

  • "[My stay at the Institute] gave me the sense of a special place and time, separated from other activities and commitments, and forever associated with research on the topic of our collective endeavor... Such an environment offers a special kind of inspiration."
