Kevin Fredy Hinterberger


I am a research assistant on Asylum and Migration Law in the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour and a re:constitution Fellow 2021/22. I studied law in Vienna and Madrid (2010-2014). In 2015, I received a Doctoral Fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) for my doctoral thesis at the Department of Constitutional and Administrative Law of the University of Vienna (2016-2019). During this time, I completed research stays in Giessen (Germany) and Madrid (Spain). My thesis deals with regularisations of irregularly staying migrants and compares the existing regularisations established in the domestic laws of Austria, Germany and Spain (Open-Access here). The English version will be published in 2022 with Nomos and Hart (FWF-funding PUB 828-G). I publish widely on issues of Public Law, EU Law and International Law (see research focuses below). I am teaching at the University of Vienna.
