Jochen Schlenk is an editor for “Verfassungsblog” — an academic and journalistic open access platform for constitutional law. There, he produces the podcast “VerfassungsPod”. Jochen studied law at Humboldt University Berlin and was a scholarship recipient of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes. Prior to his studies, he completed an apprenticeship as a carpenter. Jochen is a guest lecturer at Leuphana University Lüneburg. His research interests focus on issues related to the rule of law and constitutional theory.

Jochen has participated in the DialoguePerspectives programme for two years. In the 2021/22 programme year, Jochen has joined our team and is now one of our religious-worldview advisors.

˝The programme makes possible something that is all too rare in our society these days: speaking and having discussions across borders, not about each other, but with each other. That can be a hard slog at times, but at the same time the format makes space for follow-up questions and deeper conversations that are only possible through trust on all sides.
