Nomination Fremuth: Continuation of successful cooperation

We are delighted with Michael Lysander Fremuth on his appointment as a tenured Professor of Fundamental and Human Rights at the University of Vienna and his appointment as Scientific Director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights.

Shortly before the 30th anniversary of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights (LBI-GMR), the signs point to continuity. As of July 2022, Michael Lysander Fremuth has been appointed to the permanent professorship of Fundamental and Human Rights at the Institute of Constitutional and Administrative Law at the University of Vienna. He accepted this with effect from 1 October 2022.

This also continues the cooperation between the University of Vienna and the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft in a well-proven manner, which was enhanced with the signing of a partnership agreement between the two research institutions in September 2020. The LBI-GMR acts as a central interface between the academic research of the University of Vienna and the proven application-oriented research of the human rights institute. Last but not least, the close personal connection through Michael Lysander Fremuth, who is at the same time university professor for fundamental and human rights at the University of Vienna as well as scientific director of the LBI-GMR, enables an ongoing exchange as well as synergies and manifold cooperations.

The LBI-GMR is pleased to be able to continue this successful joint path and to proceed to bundle the expertise of the two institutions in a sustainable manner. “I would like to thank the University of Vienna and the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft for their strong commitment and dedication to basic and applied human rights research”, says Fremuth.
