Margarita Mathiopoulos : No human right is on the mortar Board

So, she fought no one against the withdrawal of the doctor's degree is determined as the historian Mathiopoulos: over six years by all the courts in this country, all in vain, and to the finals before the European court of human rights in Strasbourg. Was just simply that it has no jurisdiction.

the end of The semester waived Mathiopoulos on your honorary professorships for Foreign and security policy in Braunschweig and Potsdam – and this saves all parties Involved the potential for more clashes. Because the two colleges had announced to call the "honorary Professor", if the former Bonn doctoral exam and final table the event. With Mathiopoulos' request for "adoption" from the professorial Rights and the obligations of such revocation is to become unnecessary, such as Uni-speakers emphasize as well.

lawyer Gysi sees Mathiopoulos as a victim of discrimination

The also, the renowned law Professor Klaus Ferdinand Gärditz, who had represented the University of Bonn in the dispute to Mathiapoulos’ mortar Board says. Unlike in the Promotion Gärditz in the honorary professorship, only one Would with a title that can be returned by the Beneficiary, such as awards of a different type at any time.

Gregor Gysi, Mathiopoulos' nationwide well-known lawyer, says his client is now in a press statement to the victim of "envy and resentment" towards foreigners and women. Mathiopoulos 1956, the daughter of Greek parents, was born in Bonn, Germany. For Gysi, it was in the whole dispute to the doctor "only superficially" to plagiarism issues, in reality, the "discrimination and defamation" of a trophy wife, had a successful double career as a Bank Manager as a business consultant and at the same time, as an "outstanding scientist". The lawyer considers that it is "more than doubtful" that "a similar fate would also be a man without an immigrant background go".

in Bonn, faculty members consider such accusations to be defamatory, seeks to reassure a legal expert Gärditz with a judgment of the Federal constitutional court on the freedom of expression. After that, it can be held in prison, "to carry the personal perception of inequalities in subjective emotionality in the world". This spontaneous "right to strike" does not depend on the truth content.

the suspicion of plagiarism in the case of the award of honorary professorships skipped

The whole story was actually more complicated than it appears in the final result. It all began with a suspicion of plagiarism against the thesis that rose immediately to a specialist colleague. That was in 1989. The University of Bonn ordered a Commission of inquiry, the serious citation flaws, but no intent to deceive noted and, therefore, the doctorate is not revoked.

The accusations were dispelled by no means unique, but in the case of the award of the Professor title in 1995 and 2002, by-passed. For example, the renowned political scientist Claus Leggewie wrote in his Brunswick opinion that the Dissertation "first of all, to be attacked apart from the scientific side are wrong and without basis". With Mathiopoulos, you have a "big fish" on the hook, via the University, could be an international "point of intersection" of science and policy. The candidate was a highly respected political consultant with contacts all over the world, in science, admired by some, even feared. Today Leggewie described his recommendation as an error.

citation errors documented in the 2011 extent

The story would have been able to, if not the private plagiarism platform Vroniplag Wiki would be documented, the citation error in the thesis of the "great fish" 2011 extent. Under this pressure the Bonn faculty concluded in the following year, to the devastating re-evaluation of old test Scriptures. Your legal adviser Gärditz now declared quite openly: "The faculty would have been glad to, if you don't (got the case)."
