Institute Director Phillip Griffiths (seated next to empty chairs in front row) attends the presentation in Berlin of the first New Europe Prize for Higher Education and Research. There were two recipients of the award, which was part of an initiative by a group of six scholarly institutes in Europe and the United States (including the Institute for Advanced Study) to encourage the establishment of similar institutes in the countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The Institute's School of Social Science Faculty member Clifford Geertz is the last face visible towards the left in the second row.
