Damir Kapidzic

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

My research focuses on ethnic conflict and political parties, and the legitimation of democratic and authoritarian politics. Other areas of interest include power sharing, elections and territorial autonomy, interactions of formal and informal institutions, and peacebuilding. Much of my research looks at countries in Southeast Europe, a.k.a. the Balkans, but includes comparative perspectives and studies of countries in East Africa and Southeast Asia.

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