Moritz is a legal sociologist and labour law scholar who investigates the evolution of agency work and other forms of atypical work in the UK since the 1970s, the relation between the categories of atypical work and informal work, and the interplay of law and political economy in constructing labour market categories. Moritz completed his PhD in Law at the University of Kent in 2021. Before joining SCRIPTS, he coordinated a working group on “The Future of Work After Covid” convened by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the German Academy of Science and Engineering.

Current Research projects at SCRIPTS

Moritz is currently placing his previous study of atypical work in the UK since the 1970s in the context of informal work (as a phenomenon commonly associated with the Global South) on the one hand, and discourses on surplus-populations (drawing on the fields of global labour history, critical legal theory and fascism studies) on the other.
