Research Associate


Sophie studied law in Hamburg and Chicago, specializing in European and international law as well as in feminist legal theory. She is passionate about critical perspectives in law: especially, in which contexts legal norms play out to be less neutral than they may seem at first sight and how law can be rethought to prevent resulting hierarchal practices.

At the THE NEW INSTITUTE, Sophie supports the Research Development team by exploring how social sciences can answer these and other questions about our current societal state.
