The Fellowship Programmes of the DFG-funded Centre for Advanced Studies „Justitia Amplificata“ end in September 2020. However, Rainer Forst established a forum for political theorists and philosophers at his chair, which is largely equivalent to the previous Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme. If you are interested, please refer to the announcements on the website of his chair.
