Dr Vesna Popovski – Editor
Fellow in Conflict and Post-Conflict Studies at the European Institute
Dr. Vesna Popovski is LSE Fellow in Conflict and Post-Conflict Studies at the European Institute. She holds an MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge. Her research has evolved from interest in the Chicago school of urban sociology to analysing social rights of citizens of urban settlements in socialist Yugoslavia; from development studies, particularly post-colonial legacy on state and nation building to the rise of nationalism in the late 1980 in Eastern Europe and Russia concentrating on its effect on rights of national minorities. More recently, Vesna developed interest in food and nationalism, that is how food feeds our identity, in parallel with concentrating on issues relating to transitional justice in post-conflict societies.
