Ingolf Pernice, Prof. Dr. Dr.

Director of the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society

Research area: Global Constitutionalism and the Internet

Ingolf Pernice was the director of the Walter Hallenstein-Institute for European Constitutional Law. He studied in Marburg, Geneva, Freiburg and at the College of Europe in Bruges. After his legal clerkship at the Higher Regional Court in Munich and his doctorate on European Fundamental Rights, he became an official of the European Commission in Brussels in 1980, first on the topic of competition and later on legal service.

In 1987 he did his state doctorate about ‘equity and hardship clause in public law’ in Bayreuth. In 1993 he joined the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt. Since 1996 he has been a professor of public law, public international law and European law at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. From 1997 to 2001 he was a member of the ‘European Forum for Environment and Sustainable Development’ of the European Commission.

In 1997 he founded the Walter Hallstein-Institute for European Constitutional Law and in 1998 the European Constitutional Law Network. He is the host of the lecture series ‘Forum Constitutionis Europae’ (FCE) and ‘Humboldt-Reden zu Europa’ (HRE). Since 2006 he has been leading the DFG – Graduate School ‘Verfassung jenseits des Staates’ (Constitution Beyond the State) and from 2006 to 2008 he was the dean of his faculty.

After his visit as a senior research fellow and guest lecturer at the Law And Public Affairs (LAPA)-Programme in Princeton in 2008/09, he expanded his research from European commercial law, environmental law, currency law and constitutional law to issues of global constitutionalism, for which he deems the Internet to be an essential factor.
