BIO

Isabel is Professor of Public Law and International Economic Law at the University of Würzburg. Her research interests cover the distributive effects of international economic law, the democratization of society, and the law of the commons and commoning. She explores how institutional experiments, e.g., the redesign of money or Commons Public Partnerships, can support democratization and commoning. Her doctoral dissertation, The Law and Politics of WTO Waivers: Stability and Flexibility in Public International Law, was published in 2011 by Cambridge University Press. It gained renewed relevance with regard to recent demands for a TRIPS Waiver to facilitate the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. She is currently co-editing two volumes for publication in 2022, one on German (post-)colonial law and the other on legal constitutions of value(s).

At THE NEW INSTITUTE Isabel is involved in the program "The Future of Democracy".
