She has also completed internships in the ‘Democracy’ unit of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, where she contributed to developing the cross-border citizen participation programme ‘Common Ground’ with Germany’s border regions, and at the Permanent Representation of Austria to the EU, with a particular focus on the topics subordinated to the Political and Security Committee.
