Dana previously worked on women’s security, transitional justice, and governance issues for UNDP and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation in Kosovo. She has also conducted internships with Human Rights Watch and the European Centre for Minority Issues. Her research interests include peace processes, state-building, ethnic conflict, diversity, and nationalism.
