Dr Ned Richardson-Little is Nachwuchsgruppenleiter in the Volkswagen Foundation-funded Freigeist project “The Other Global Germany: Transnational Criminality and Deviant Globalization in the 20th Century” at the University of Erfurt. His first book, The Human Rights Dictatorship. Socialism, Global Solidarity, and Revolution in East Germany (CUP 2020) explored the dynamics of state-controlled rights discourse and dissident activism centred on socialist human rights language. His current research projects include “Guns, Drugs, and Globalization: The Rise of Illicit International Trade and the Boundaries of Germany in the World 1890-1940” and “The Rights of the Volk: Human Rights, the Basic Law and the Far-Right since Reunification” (part of the Volkswagen project “Towards Illiberal Constitutionalism in East Central Europe: Historical Analysis in Comparative and Transnational Perspectives”).
