Flora Ferati-Sachsenmaier received her doctoral degree in Global Governance and Regional Integration from the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) in 2015. In the same year, she became lecturer at the Institute of Sociology, University of Göttingen, where she advised students and taught graduate courses on Ethnic Conflicts and Reconciliation Efforts in the Western Balkans, the Changing Roles of Women’s Movements in the Balkans since the 1980s, and Balkan Conflict Diasporas: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives. Her main research interests are conflict dynamics, peacebuilding processes in politically contested territories, and global and local civil society interactions in post-conflict societies.
