About Kristin Y. Albrecht
I have been a PostDoc at the University of Salzburg at the Department of International Law, European Law and Philosophy of Law of the Faculty of Law since May 2021. Before that, I worked at the Universities of Graz, Salzburg and Heidelberg and spent research stays at Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London. I am currently editing the Justice section of the  Encyclopedia of the Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy (ed. Stephan Kirste/Mortimer Sellars) with Univ.-Prof. Dr. John Tasioulas (Oxford) and the Research Handbook on Legal Fictions (series: Elgar Research Handbooks in Legal Theory) with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Simon Stern (University of Toronto) and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Lisa Saraganian (Johns Hopkins University). I am involved as a co-founder and board member of SAFI, a network for the support of women in law, as well as board member of “Junges Forum Rechtsphilosophie”, which is the oldest German-language network for the promotion of young legal philosophy.

Prior to my current position at the University of Salzburg, I was a PostDoc at the Institute of Public Law (  Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Bezemek, B.A., LL.M. (Yale)) at the University of Graz (2021) and a Senior Scientist at the University of Salzburg (2019-2020). My dissertation on  „Fiktionen im Recht“ will be published in October 2020 in the series Studien zur Rechtsphilosophie und Rechtstheorie (editors: Ralf Dreier/Robert Alexy/Carsten Bäcker/Martin Borowski). This work was supervised by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stephan Kirste and was written during my employment as a university assistant at the University of Salzburg from 2015-2019. Before that, I worked at the University of Heidelberg as a research assistant to  Univ.-Prof. Dr. Ute Mager (2015).

Current Research Focuses
My research currently focuses on the philosophy of law (especially fictions), the foundations of public law and comparative law.
