Office Team

Jörg Trem­mel
is respon­si­ble for the sci­en­tif­ic jour­nal of the FRFG (Inter­gen­er­a­tional Jus­tice Review), the Inter­gen­er­a­tional Jus­tice Award, and the Walk­shops of the FRFG. The main idea of the Walk­shops is an expan­sion of knowl­edge can be fos­tered through phys­i­cal move­ment (thus the com­bi­na­tion of the words “work­shop” and “walk” = “walk­shop”). Par­tic­i­pants are meant to absorb facts and under­stand con­cepts through audi­to­ry learn­ing mate­ri­als over the course of sev­er­al days whilst hik­ing through nature.  The pre­vi­ous walk­shops took place on the top­ics “Cli­mate cri­sis” (110 km) and “Coal phase-out” (44 km), “Search for a final stor­age site for nuclear waste” (40 km) and “Social secu­ri­ty” (38 km).


Lena Winz­er (project manager)
born in 2001, is cur­rent­ly in her final year of her MA (Hons) Inter­na­tion­al Rela­tions and Legal Stud­ies degree at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Aberdeen in Scot­land. While focus­ing on human rights and inter­na­tion­al insti­tu­tions in her stud­ies, she is also deeply involved in projects and activ­i­ties out­side of uni­ver­si­ty. She is the pres­i­dent and trea­sur­er of the Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al soci­ety, works as a research assis­tant for Lawyers with­out Bor­ders at uni­ver­si­ty and has recent­ly obtained the Youth Ambas­sador posi­tion at Safe Child Thai­land. She has pri­mar­i­ly delved into women’s rights on an inter­na­tion­al lev­el and exam­ined the ille­gal­i­ty and con­se­quences of the Russ­ian attack on Ukraine. Fur­ther­more, she has organ­ised fundrais­ing events, protests, and a “Write for Rights” event for Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al on campus.




Addi­tion­aly, the office team is always sup­port­ed by sev­er­al young and high­ly ded­i­cat­ed interns.
