Mitchell Institute Postgraduate Research Student Emily Mitchell-Bajic examines two focal conceptual elements of understanding how survivors of sexual violence are interpreted in the post-Yugoslav nation states of Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, and Kosovo, in the Working Paper entitled Navigating Research on Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in the Post-Yugoslav Space.
