Current Visiting Fellows
Tamara Jovanovic (Sweden)
Tamara completed a BA in International Relations at the University of Malta and thereafter a Masters Programme in European Studies at Uppsala University in Sweden, where she specialized on Europeanization and minority rights in Europe. Since September 2010 she is a PHD Fellow at the Institute of Society and Globalization at Roskilde University in Denmark, where she is also teaching within the EU Studies programme. Her PHD dissertation looks at the role of Europeanization and the dynamics added by transnational human rights on present approaches to national minority groups in Europe. The key focus relates to the fusions between national and supranational politics and legislation, looking at the extent of impact generated by EU integration policies and legislation on national minority groups in EU member states. To this end, she applies the mechanisms of Europeanization and transnational forces as the main framework within which national minority groups are studied.
As such, her main research interests are located within the field of European studies, European integration, EU policy making, human rights and how these features link to national minority groups in times of Europeanization, globalization and transnationalization. At the ECMI Tamara will be working with Tove Malloy under the cluster of Citizenship and Ethics, but she will also be developing own research further.
