Work and research focus:

Stella Wolter studied Political Science (BA) and Cultural and Social Anthropology (BA) at the University of Vienna. In April 2021, she completed her Master's degree in "Cultural differences and transnational processes" at the University of Vienna with the thesis "Waiting, liminality and precarity: the experiences of asylum-seeking children in Austria". During her studies, she completed internships at the German Institute for Global Area Studies in Hamburg and the Goethe Institute Tawain. From 2019 she worked as a scientific project staff (prae doc) and coordinator in the EU-H2020 project "MiCREATE - migrant children and communities in a transforming Europe" at the University of Vienna under the supervision of Prof. Birgit Sauer. Besides, she also worked as a lecturer at the University of Vienna. Since 2022 she works as a research associate at the Center for Social Innovation (ZSI) and is a project evaluator at the social innovation award "SozialMarie". Stella Wolter publishes in peer-reviewed journals (e.g. Wiley, Taylor & Francis) and holds workshops on diversity, integration and migration (clients include OeAD, CESIE). Her current research topics include processes of inclusion and exclusion, intersectionality, migration, social innovations, social policy, statehood, collective identity, and qualitative empirical social research. She has skills in conducting interviews and focus groups, policy analysis, ethnography, surveys, evaluations, and workshops, and in using an art-based and child-centered approach.
