Ivor is a Research Officer at the European Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He works on the ERC funded project “Justice Interactions and Peacebuilding: From Static to Dynamic Discourses across National, Ethnic, Gender and Age Groups”. He is interested in studying processes of transitional justice and reconciliation in the aftermath of conflict. He focuses his research on the former Yugoslav states and is interested in applying novel methodological approaches to the study of post-conflict societies. His PhD from the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES), awarded in 2016, researched why the transitional justice process in Croatia, following the 1991-1995 conflict, failed to instil universal human rights norms in society. Prior to beginning his PhD, Ivor completed an MSc and BSc in European Politics from the Department of International Politics at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
Before joining the European Institute, Ivor was a Research Officer on the AHRC funded “Art and Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community” project at the LSE Department of Government. His research focused on new conceptualisations of reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo. Prior to this he held teaching positions focusing on qualitative methods and introductions to political science at the UCL School of Public Policy and the UCL Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry (CMII). In 2019, Ivor published a book based on his research on Croatia, titled International Courts and Mass Atrocity: Narratives of War and Justice in Croatia (Palgrave MacMillan). He has published articles in Nations & Nationalism, Nationalities Papers, Südosteuropa and The Croatian Political Science Review. He is currently beginning further research on transitional justice across the former Yugoslavia.
