Defending Academic Freedom by Measuring It:
The example of the Academic Freedom Index.

Professor Dr. Katrin Kinzelbach teaches the international politics of human rights and co-directs FAU’s MA Human Rights. She specializes in empirical research on human rights violations. Her ongoing work focuses on academic freedom infringements worldwide, and she also has a particular interest in the People’s Republic of China, where she lived for two years.

Before joining FAU in September 2019, Prof. Dr. Kinzelbach was associate director of the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin. In parallel, she taught as a visiting professor at the Central European University in Budapest, heading a practice-oriented human rights clinic for several years. From 2007-2010, she worked as a research associate at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights in Vienna. During this time, she wrote her PhD on the EU-China human rights dialogue and won the Körber Foundation’s Deutscher Studienpreis, which honors outstanding PhD research of particular value to society. Outside of think tanks and academia, Professor Kinzelbach has also worked for the United Nations Development Programme, serving at various duty stations around the world between 2001 and 2007.

Katrin Kinzelbach currently serves on the selection committee of the Philipp Schwartz Initiative, and on advisory boards of the Academy in Exile as well as of the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
