Sarah Alami works as a research assistant and communications specialist at the Center for Internet and Human Rights. She is a Master student in European Studies (MES) at European-University Viadrina and holds a B.A. in Cultural Studies from Leuphana University Lüneburg.
In her BA thesis, Sarah analyzed 500 reader’s comments under online articles and found that the social construct of “poverty immigration” plays an important role in strategies used to legitimize the restriction of fundamental rights for particular migrants.
Before joining the CIHR, Sarah conducted an internship at Goethe-Institut Senegal, where she worked on organizing cultural events, and public and social media relations. At Leuphana University Lüneburg, Sarah was a student assistant at the International Office.
Sarah is interested in interdisciplinary perspectives on participation and digitization, civic engagement in social media and digital democracy.
