Dejan Jović - Biography

Dr Dejan Jovic joined the Department of Politics, University of Stirling in September 2000, having been a Jean Monnet Fellow at theEuropean University Institute in Florence. Born in the former Yugoslavia, he graduated with degrees in Political Science from Zagreb (1990) and Ljubljana (MSc in 1994). In 1994 he moved to the United Kingdom where he obtained a MSc degree in Political Theory (at the University of Manchester, 1995) and a PhD at London School of Economics (1999). His doctoral research was a case study of the disintegration of Yugoslavia based on dozens of interviews with the highest-ranking members of the Yugoslav political elites in the 1974-1990 period, as well as on documents and internal Party and state publications of that time. The focus was on the creation of ideological narratives in the communist Yugoslavia and links between such narratives and political action which led to disintegration. A revised version of his thesis is to be published as book in 2001. Dejan Jovic's research focuses on the politics and history of the former Yugoslavia, and also on the stability and disintegration of states, transition theories and politics in South-eastern Europe. His publication record includes several chapters in books and articles in journals in Austria, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Hungary, and the post-Yugoslav states. Dr Jovic is a consultant for the Economist Intelligence Unit and his expertise has been used by several British consultancy firms and occasionally by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.At Stirling, he teaches 'Stability and Disintegration of States' and 'The Rise and Fall of Yugoslavia'
