Dr Clara Rauchegger is a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow at the Law Department of the European University Institute.

She completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge as a scholar of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the UK Arts & Humanities Research Council. She further holds an LLM in EU Law from the University of Cambridge (First Class Honours) and Magister degrees in Law and in French from the University of Innsbruck (both with Distinction).

Dr Rauchegger’s research interests lie at the intersections of EU and domestic constitutional law, with a particular focus on European fundamental rights protection. Her research project at the EUI examines the enforcement of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights by domestic constitutional courts from a comparative perspective. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

Prior to the PhD, Dr Rauchegger worked at the Representation of Tyrol to the EU, the European Parliament and the Court of Justice of the EU.
