About Egas Moniz-Bandeira

Egas Moniz-Bandeira studied Law and East Asian studies in Heidelberg, where he passed the First Juridical State Examination with distinction in 2010. After his legal clerkship (Referendariat), he passed the German bar exam (Second State Examination) in 2013.

Egas joined the Cluster in October 2013 as a PhD candidate in Sinology. As a member of research project MC5 (“towards a global history of concepts”), he is examining the globalisation of the concept of constitutionalism on the case of late Imperial China’s constitutional movement. 

In 2015, he enrolled as a PhD candidate in the joint degree doctoral programme (CNDC) between Heidelberg University and Tohoku University (Sendai/Japan, Japanese supervisor: Prof. Dr. Yusuke Anami). In 2015/16, he spent one year as research assistant at Tohoku University, as well as two months as postgraduate visiting scholar at Tsinghua University in Beijing/China. His research interests include the intellectual and political history of late Imperial China, Sino-Japanese and Sino-Russian interactions, ancient Chinese manuscripts as well as theory of the state.
