15-Min Flash Talk: Politics of Victimhood

Join us for a new episode of ODID Flash Talks: a new series where a speaker gets 15 minutes to present on their research, fieldwork, or work experience. 

Dr Jessie Barton Hronešová's research studies different victim groups in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina and their efforts for socio-economic compensation since 1995 until present. She specifically looks at victims of sexual violence, missing people families, injured civilians and ex-camp inmates. She studies their strategies to justify their claims for compensation such as legal mobilization, collective action, leveraging of their victimhood identity and creation of coalitions with international actors. In this flash talk, Dr Hronešová will present her conceptual framework for understanding victims' claim-making and successes.

The short talk will be followed by a Q&A and socialising in the Hall.

All welcome to this free event. A light lunch is provided.
