Previously, she worked on a project with the Swiss Red Cross in Bolivia with special focus on organizational development and public health. As a research assistant at the seminar of anthropology at the University of Basel, Camelia Chebbi dealt with socio-cultural aspects of sustainable tourism development in the South. Before that, she was managing coordinator of the Frauenstadtrundgang Basel.

She graduated at the University of Basel with a Master of Arts (formerly: licentiate) in Cultural Anthropology and Spanish Philology after stays in Spain, Neuchâtel and a field research in Costa Rica.
