Who we are

We are a group of legally focused researchers at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, trained as jurists, historians, political scientists or political theorists. Even though we are engaged in a wide range of issues, the defining feature of our work is its focus on problems, concepts and institutions connected to the modern constitutionalist tradition and its commitment to the rule of law, democracy and human rights. Typically, our research is not focused on any one jurisdiction, but addresses a wider comparative, European or global frame of reference.
