Drawing from post-colonial, queer and feminist theories, Sanja’s master thesis asked how gender, sexuality, desire, and race are normed, negotiated, limited, and included in international voluntary work, and was published in the Kölner Wissenschaftsverlag and Nomos-Verlag. Sanja worked for many years as a social justice and diversity trainer, and founded an NGO for political education.
