The Rule of Law in Retreat

Prof. Haverkamp publishes on "The Rule of Law and the European Union in Challenging Times" in a comprehensive anthology. The anthology "The Rule of Law in Retreat: Challenges to Justice in the United Nations World" provides keen insights into the globally relevant implications of the rule of law for human rights, constitutional law, and legal philosophy at a time when they are being so strongly challenged. The authors analyze the issues of judicial independence, free education, mass media freedom, populism, and corruption from this legal perspective.

Postal survey completed

The postal survey of residents in the area of operation of the Municipal Law Enforcement Service Munich (KAD) started at the beginning of March 2021. As part of the evaluation of the KAD, the Endowed Professorship conducted a survey to gain new insights into what makes a city livable and safe. A total of 5,000 Munich residents were asked to participate in the survey.

Many thanks to all who participated!

Prevention in times of COVID-19

On the occasion of current developments, the SiBa team has compiled selected prevention measures in times of the Covid 19 pandemic. The resulting Corona booklet offers a small, alphabetically ordered collection of 31 selected preventive measures to keep train stations and their surroundings at least partially as central contact point, transit point and place to stay - but with the intention of avoiding high numbers of users in order to be able to comply with safety distances and hygiene regulations.

The Corona booklet and further information on the project can be found here.
