Marianne von Blomberg


Marianne von Blomberg is a Research Associate at the Chair of Chinese Legal Culture where she explores how the evolving Social Credit Systems strengthen, transform, and challenge the law. Her current research focuses on reputational sanctions in social credit systems and social credit’s genealogy. In her dissertation, she observes the case of China’s Social Credit System to unearth how trust assessment systems in both governance and the market affect the functioning and role of traditional legalities. Marianne holds an LL.M degree from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, a BA in Communication and Cultural Studies from Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen and has worked and interned with several news outlets, the Volkswagen Group, and the German Embassy in Ottawa.
