I am an Associate Professor of Comparative Politics at the Faculty of Political Science of the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

My research looks at ethnic conflict, political parties and power-sharing. I am particularly interested in formal and informal processes and institutional arrangements through which democratic or authoritarian politics are legitimized. Much of my research looks at countries in Southeast Europe, a.k.a. the Balkans, but also includes comparative perspectives from East Africa and Southeast Asia, applying qualitative and mixed methods approaches.

I teach and write in Croatian (Bosnian, Serbian), English, and German.
