Studies and research

Peaceful Government it is my literary pseudonym. My part of non-literature was (and it still is) very interested in political theory and how it conditions our contexts. Between 2005-2008 I did the Faculty of Political Sciences within SNSPA Bucharest. Then enter 2008-2010 Master of Theory and Political Analysis from the same University. And between 2010-2013 I was a PhD student with a research scholarship that allowed me to study at the Free University of Berlin, at the University of Ljubljana and then I stayed in Bosnia and Herzegovina for almost a year, where I did field research. In the 2014 I published a book based on my doctoral research at Tritonic Publishing House (Bosnia and Herzegovina – a critical case study of Europeanization). I then took two more postdoctoral fellowships in the field of Western Balkan research (because I couldn't find a job), I worked 6 Monday in Kosovo and from 2016 I am a university lecturer in the Department of International Relations and European Integration of SNSPA.
Besides poetry, more public sometimes and opinion articles and essays in Old dilemma and The cultural observatory. And interviews with Balkan artists: Adisa Basic orJeton Neziraj.

And some political analysis in English: Future Lab Europe blog, Sarajevo Times
