Rita Haverkamp was appointed to the Professorship of Crime Prevention and Risk Management at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen on october 1, 2013.

Born in North Rhine Westphalia, Rita Haverkamp studied law at the universities of Passau and Freiburg. She completed the First Legal State Exam in 1993 and worked as a researcher in the Department of Criminal Law at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law until 1997. In 2002 she took her second state exam at the university of Freiburg.

After completing her doctoral thesis concerning the electronic monitoring of criminal offenders, she began to conduct research on the prison system.

The research project "Women in Prison against the background of the European Prison Rules", which she worked on from 2002 to 2005, was funded by a post-doctoral grant from the "Hochschul- und Wissenschaftsprogramm (HWP)" at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich.

From 2006 to October 2007 additional funding was obtained through a habilitation grant provided by the HWP at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University.

Subsequently Rita Haverkamp was employed by Prof. Dr. em. Heinz Schöch as a research assistant at the chair for criminal law, criminology, youth criminal law and prison law at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University until April 2008. Afterwards she mainly focused on terrorism and security research, while working as a senior researcher in the Department of Criminology at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law.

She has also worked as a private lecturer at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University from 2010 on.
