PhD, Independent researcher
Area of expertise

I am independent researcher, and focus of my research is on war crimes, post-war reconstruction and the role of the media in war and post-conflict societies. I have 20 years of experience as a journalist in Bosnia and Herzegovina who covered war crimes trials, stories about survivors and victims of war rape (man and women). Currently, I am conducting research on war crimes perpetrators in the Balkans.
