Manfred Nowak and Hannes Tretter founded the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights in 1992 together with Felix Ermacora. Until the end of March 2019, they acted as Scientific Directors of the Institute, which established itself as the most important and largest research institution for human rights in Austria. The focus was always on the close interaction between research and practice, which has shaped the work of the institute to this day. The BIM is pleased that Manfred Nowak and Hannes Tretter continue to be actively involved in its projects.
