Professor for Public Law and Gender Studies at Humboldt University Berlin; Justice of the Federal Constitutional Court
Principle Investigator of sub-project A: “Claiming a Common World? Gender in Environmental Law and Climate Litigation”

This research group pursues the issue  at a fascinating as well as  highly topical intersection. How are gender relations negotiated, if we focus on collectives relating to and dealing with law?
