Vision Statement

I am a comparative political sociologist and a theorist who is interested in the issues of ethnicity, nationalism, war, peace and justice. My work explores social, political and security problems related to ethnic diversity and national minorities, why ethnic groups react differently to similar policies, how they differ from each other and what explains their electoral behaviour and conflict proneness. I also look at more problematic cases in which people’s ethno-cultural freedom is in conflict with their very own economic equal opportunities. I aim to shed light on political designs that best accommodate this tension in different settings such as ethnic conflict, devolution, multi-level governance, and globalization.
