She became chair of the Austrian student’s union and served on European and national committees for higher education in the areas of student’s union, Bologna Process and quality assurance.

She was working as a teacher for German as a foreign language and as a lecturer for diversity and disability studies (FH Kärnten).

Janine's PhD project builds on more than a decade of working in Holocaust Education as activist, guide and volunteer in museums as well as a trainer organising field schools and workshops at diverse Holocaust memorial sites in Europe, with a particular focus on Austrian memorial politics and partisan resistance movements. Within her interdisciplinary PhD, Janine is interested in how teachers are prepared for their work in Holocaust Education.
