The Institute for International and Comparative Constitutional Law has launched a programme for the promotion of excellent doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in the fields of international, European and comparative constitutional law. The core of the programme consists of two workshops per semester that are devoted to the discussion of the Junior Scholars’ research projects as well as academic publications. The workshops will be directed by the respective Dietrich Schindler Lecturer and a member of the Institute. The programme lasts one year and is meant to foster the academic exchange with internationally renowned experts in the field.
