In 2008, she spent a semester at the Freie Universität Berlin. During her studies, Hanna worked as a research assistant to professor J.A. Peters (UvA, constitutional law) and did internships with Amsterdam-based law firm Prakke d’Óliveira and the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (Trial Chambers section).

Hanna’s PhD research, under the supervision of prof.
