I am a scholar of International Relations and more specifically, of the politics of the past and knowledge production. I conduct interdisciplinary research informed by social theory and I am particularly interested in the micro-macro, local-global, and individual-collective connections and disconnections in global politics. My research expertise includes conflict prevention, transitional and post-conflict justice, human rights norms and norm interactions, knowledge production, the politics of memory, ontological (in)security and international criminal law. My training and qualifications lie at the intersections of international politics and international law.
I am employed as Lecturer in International Relations at Cardiff University in the UK. I have completed my PhD in the School of Government and International Affairs at Durham University in 2022. I also hold an MA in Human Rights from Central European University.
I am Serbian-born and have lived and worked in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Turkey, Hungary and the UK.
My academic interests include all matters transitional justice, human rights norms and norm interactions, knowledge production, and, more recently, genocide denial and historical revisionism. I think, write and speak about these topics.
I teach Transitional Justice, War and Society, International Security, Global Governance, and Feminist International Relations.
Prior to becoming a full-time researcher, I worked in the field of migration as a field officer and consultant. In addition to transitional justice and human rights matters, I also consult on the rights and experiences of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers in the Western Balkans and on prevention of violence against women and girls. I have recently collaborated with non-governmental organisations such as Beyond Borders Scotland and the Youth Initiative for Human Rights in Serbia. I am an active member of OSCE's WOMentorship program, conducting long-term mentoring for young women in Serbia and Kosovo.
