I was born in in 1981 in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia (then one of the six republics of Yugoslavia). I graduated at the Faculty of political science (journalism) two years ago. I have been working in journalism since I was 17 and since then I worked for different media outlets in the region and abroad (the longest time spent on Radio 101 in Zagreb).
I began being interested in human rights related stories, started working for some NGOs and after that I did projects for the Council of Europe. I also did youth work, volunteered in Scotland, Sicily, Germany, France and Slovakia and went through many trainings, conferences and seminars on human rights related issues.
I developed an interest in dealing with the past, transitional justice, international justice mechanisms, war crimes etc. Now I am finishing my masters course in human rights in Sarajevo, writing a thesis on the impact of the Hague Tribunal on the reconciliation process in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Hi Iva,

Your new work sounds great, though I know its trying and difficult, I wish you all the best. My paper on rape warfare will be on an overall international scale, but will of course encompass Bosnia and the region
, Jelena sent me a few things, but yes if you come across anything that would be great...thanks!

Yes, I am in DC...it was just one year for me last month. Sorry I missed you on your last visit, but I would love to meet with you on your next one. that would be great if you did a PhD in DC.

Hi Iva,

Great to hear from you. I would definitely like to read your thesis and hear more about your radio program. How cool. If you need help identifying PhD programs, I know quite a bit about ICAR/GMU one. That's where I got my M.S. I am also getting ready to apply for a Ph.D. but only in Sweden. I am thinking of doing a comparative study of Bosnia and kazakhstan. Have to think some more about it. Btw, my husband is from Sarajevo and am beginning to take language classes tomorrow. Maybe I can email you in Bosniac sometimes ;)

Ciao. Lets keep in touch. Amina.

Ciao Iva,

My name is Amina. I lived and worked in Sarajevo a few years back. Your research about reconciliation process sounds interesting. I would love to hear more.

Check out: http://ict4peace.org/articles/Handbook%20pdf-vers%20eng%20220404.pdf
It is about CR and Journalism, you might find it interesting.

Videmo se, Amina.
