Biography

Dr Johannes Döveling, LL.M. (Cape Town) is a research associate (Akademischer Rat a. Z.) at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. He is the Project Leader of the research project “Steering Regional Development through Regional Economic Communities in Africa: Legal, Economic and Political Instruments”.

Johannes has been working with the Tanzanian-German Centre for Eastern African Legal Studies (TGCL), a think-tank on regional integration law at the University of Dar es Salaam School of Law, since 2012. In 2017 he was appointed as Deputy Leader of this centre.

After having completed his legal studies at the University of Bayreuth (First State Examination, with distinction), Johannes obtained an LLM degree with a specialisation in Environmental Law from the University of Cape Town. During his subsequent two-years legal clerkship (Referendariat), he worked inter alia for a leading international law firm, at courts of ordinary and administrative jurisdiction, in the legal department of a railway infrastructure company and at the German Embassy in Nairobi. Johannes successfully completed his legal clerkship by passing his Second State Examination with distinction.

Johannes gained his PhD with a thesis on the law of the East African Community (“Das Recht der Ostafrikanischen Gemeinschaft. Eine kritische Analyse” – summa cum laude). His primary research interests are public international law with a focus on regional integration law, as well as constitutional law, environmental law and the legal regulation of network industries. In his function as the Project Leader, Johannes travels to the region several times a year to discuss the latest legal developments with renowned East African scholars and practitioners.
