While cum/ex trades are back on trial with a criminal lawsuit againt Dr. Hanno Berger at the Landgericht Bonn, I had the pleasure to continue my study in the courtroom. A KHK/GCR21 working paper on the first cum/ex trial will be published soon.
On June 17, 2021, we have established an association (Verein) to launch the Point Alpha Research Institite on the former inner-German border between Hessen and Thuringia. The Institute will be run as a collaboration between Fulda University of Applied Sciences and University of Erfurt and be funded by the Federal State of Thuringia. Work will address Cold War Studies, Border Studies, and questions of Democracy in a Global Order.
On April 29, 2021, I have been appointed Professor in Political Science (Politics of Human Rights) at Fulda University of Applied Sciences. I fear that I cannot remember the exact wording, but I had to say “I swear”. Photo with Präsident Prof. Dr. Karim Khakzar and Dean Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Reinhard.

On Monday, Jan 25, I have successfully finished the process of my Habilitation with a talk on “tax arbitrage: on the global production of grey zones”. Feels great! My thanks go the members of the commission who generated a great atmosphere for academic discussion, even though the event had to take place online.
“The Workings of Power in Transnational Law”, which is also the part of my kumulative Habilitation at Universität Hamburg, has been published in the TLI Think! Working Paper Series (Transnational Law Institute, Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London). The paper is available here and here.
