Dr. Katrin Eggenberger was sworn in as the Principality of Liechtenstein’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Justice, and Culture on 11 November 2019 as one of the youngest female ministers worldwide, shortly ahead of one of the most pressing and demanding times for governments in history. Her Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Justice, and Culture brings together three fields in which Liechtenstein actively expresses its autonomy as a country. Policies in these areas contribute significantly to defining the way the country sees itself. Before serving as Minister, she headed the World Economic Forum’s Community of Chairpersons, which is comprised of over 100 of the world’s most influential chairpersons of large corporations who meet in an informal and trusting setting to discuss the key challenges of today. Serving in the Executive Chairman’s Office, she was instrumental in establishing a new global platform for start-ups, tech entrepreneurs, businesses, NGOs, governments, and universities to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. In her capacity as Chief of Staff, she was responsible for staffing Professor Klaus Schwab on his travels to over 25 countries. Katrin was a visiting researcher at Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and joined the Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination at Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs. Concurrently, Katrin completed her five-year PhD dissertation in International Relations and Political Economy, “Solving Corporation Problems over International Taxation: Power, Legitimacy and Sovereignty,” whose supervisors included Nobel Memorial Prize recipient Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz. She has published various papers in internationally renowned journals, most recently in the 2018 Review of International Political Economy, Volume 25(4). During her doctorate studies at the University of St. Gallen, she conducted research at LSE in London and the University of Cambridge. Prior to her studies, Katrin worked at several financial institutions in Liechtenstein and Switzerland, including as a director-level manager at Switzerland’s oldest private bank, heading its fund-based wealth management department. She competed for 20 years in team sports internationally. Katrin is a Maurice R. Greenberg Yale World Fellow, Atlantic Council Millennium Fellow and Asian Forum on Global Governance Fellow. In April 2020, Katrin published a joint op-ed with the foreign ministers of Ghana, Indonesia, Norway, Singapore and Switzerland on the necessity to globally coordinate the response to COVID-19, culminating in a COVID-19 resolution that was passed by the UN General Assembly with the active support of 188 member states.
