Most recently Elena co-edited a book on the everyday manifestations of the political economy of peace, Economies of peace: Economy formation processes in conflict-affected societies, published with Routledge in April 2019. Her research has explored issues of gender, intersectionality, transitional justice, and political economy in post-war societies, with a particular focus on Bosnia and Herzegovina and Colombia.
