PhD projects

Any proposal for a research project that deals with aspects of ethnic politics from a comparative perspective is warmly welcome. I am particularly interested in the interplay of social and institutional change in postcommunism in issue areas of non-discrimination, minority protection, migration and civil society. In the past I looked at the dynamic relations between national identity, power relations and ethnic conflict across the postcommunist region and particularly at institutions of the nation-state.

Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in relationships between the state and society, interrelations between the majority and the minority, issues relating to non-discrimination in the wider Europe and the impact of European integration broadly conceived on societal change and dynamics in political institutions. At the heart of it, is the interest in ethnic politics and their impact on transition from communism in Central Eastern European states.

I am particularly interested in the interplay of social and institutional change in postcommunism in issue areas of non-discrimination, minority protection, migration and civil society. In the past I looked at the dynamic relations between national identity, power relations and ethnic conflict across the postcommunist region and particularly at institutions of the nation-state. Using the cases of institutions tasked with minority protection, I investigate how democratising states cooperate with one another as well as with international organisations to reduce ethnic tensions domestically and ensure peace and stability in postcommunist states.
