Maria Abad Andrade to win Humboldt-Prize 2020

Our former colleague Maria Abad Andrade has won one Humboldt-Prize 2020 for her dissertation "Verfassungsgerichtliche Entscheidungsfindung und ihre Folgen. Das Türkische Verfassungsgericht zwischen Mehrheitslogik und Konsensverfahren".

The dissertation analyses the decision-making process of the Turkish Constitutional Court on the basis of interviews with former Justices and an analysis of several judgements. Maria Abad Andrade shows that the court follows opposing logics in the decision-making process and thereby hinders itself.

We cordially congratualate her on this success!
