Congratulations to my former doctoral student Jonathan Rimdolmsom Kabre for publishing his spectacular thesis on the role of private counsel in international disputes involving States!

Congratulations to my former doctoral student Jonathan Rimdolmsom Kabre for publishing his spectacular thesis on the role of private counsel in international disputes involving States!

This doctoral thesis defended at the Law School of the University of Lausanne under the supervision of Professor Andreas R. Ziegler examines the work of lawyers and counsels in international litigation and is structured around two axes. The first axis aims at a triple objective of defining these lawyers in international litigation, clarifying the legal framework within which their action takes place and identifying the different roles they can play. In the second axis, the analysis focuses on the legitimacy of these private lawyers as agents of litigating States. In particular, questions relating to their representativeness, their accountability and the costs of their action are analyzed.

[Translate to Englisch:] [Translate to Englisch:]

Forum Transregionale Studien invites applications for 20 Fellowships as part of the re:constitution programme for the upcoming academic year from October 2021 to July 2022.

The re:constitution Fellows pursue their own topical projects on current developments and challenges regarding democracy and the rule of law in Europe. As one of the common values of all EU Member States, the rule of law has come under pressure in recent years, and the ways and means of upholding it have become much-discussed political, legal and social issues. By addressing these developments in their projects and debates, the re:constitution Fellows will participate in this European discourse and become part of a European exchange network of scholars and practitioners.

Please find the Call for Application here.

Application Deadline: 6 April 2021, 12 Noon CEST.

If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ or contact the programme coordination team: reconstitution@trafo-berlin.de

HOW TO APPLY

Please submit your application via our secure online application platform by 6 April 2021, 12 noon (CEST)

Applications by e-mail will not be considered!

The diversity of our society should also be reflected in the Fellowships. We therefore welcome applicants of all cultural and social backgrounds, ages, religions, world views, disabilities or sexual identities. The applications will be evaluated by the members of the re:constitution Collegium. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of the evaluation process by the end of June.

The working language of re:constitution is English.

We are monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic closely. In the interest of the health and safety of our Fellows and to comply with government regulations, we have introduced more flexibility into the programme. Remote and digital exchanges have replaced in-person meetings for now. Nevertheless, we will go ahead with the Fellowships as announced in this call.

Here you can find more information about previous Fellows and the programme itself.
