Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek (born February 28, 1969 as Eva Glawischnig) is an Austrian politician of the Austrian Green Party and its federal spokeswoman from 2008 until 2017.


Born in Villach, Carinthia, Glawischnig attended gymnasium in Spittal an der Drau and took her Matura exams there.[1] She then studied law at the University of Graz, Styria, graduating in 1993 (Magistra) and 1999 (doctorate) respectively.[1]

Glawischnig worked as a legal adviser for Global 2000 (de) from 1992 until 1996.[1] In that year she embarked on a career in regional politics for the Green Party of Vienna, later moving on to the federal level.[1] She has been a member of the National Council of Austria (Nationalrat) since 1999[2] and became vice-chairperson of the Austrian Green Party in 2002.[1] Glawischnig has been a persistent critic of the Austrian government headed by Wolfgang Schüssel. On October 30, 2006 she became Third Speaker of the Austrian Parliament, as the first representative of the Greens in this office.[3]

On 3 October 2008, Glawischnig became the Greens' federal spokeswoman following Alexander Van der Bellen's resignation.[4]

On 18 May 2017, she resigned as the Greens' federal spokeswoman and retired from politics, citing personal reasons.[5]
