Katarina Kušić received her PhD in International Politics at Aberystwyth University, Wales. Since then, she has taught Politics and Development at University of Bristol and completed the UK Economic and Social Research Council post-doctoral fellowship at Aberystwyth University. Her PhD and post-doctoral research studied the everyday experiences of international intervention in Serbia, focussing specifically on youth in non-formal education, and the reforms of agricultural governance. She is now developing a new project on political ecologies of land in Southeast Europe, which aims to study land governance, land grabbing, and everyday experiences of land as differently assembled human-soil relations. Dr Kušić has published on postcolonial and decolonial thought in the Balkans, and fieldwork based and interpretive methodologies in International Relations and Political Science.
