She was co-founder and Director of the Association for Interreligious Peace Work “Abraham”, which was established in Sarajevo in 1998. Before moving to Germany in 2005, she was a senior assistant lecturer in German Literature and Cultural Studies at the German Department of the Philosophical Faculty in Sarajevo.

She also holds a graduate diploma in English and German Studies from the Pedagogical Faculty in Osijek and a post-graduate diploma in Comparative Literature Studies from the University in Sarajevo.
Dr Martina Fischer served as project director of the project “Dealing with the Past and Peacebuilding in the Western Balkans, with a special focus on analysis of interviews with international actors and summary analysis. Dr Ljubinka Petrović-Ziemer has conducted a major part of the empiric research and contributes an analysis of civil society organisations and legal institutions.
For the interviews with members of political parties the research project could build on
support by experts based in the region of former Yugoslavia:
Srđan Dvornik contributed an analysis from Croatia, Katarina Milićević conducted talks in Serbia, and Dr Ismet Sejfija focused on political parties in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Srđan Dvornik is an independent consultant, researcher and translator, living in Zagreb (Croatia). He graduated in philosophy and sociology, and holds an MA in Political Science from the University of Zagreb. His expertise covers human rights, civil society, and democratic transformation. He produced a study on human rights protection for UNDP and the Croatian Ombudsman, and reports for the Croatian Law Centre (the National Focal Point for the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights). Furthermore, he facilitated the development of a national strategy for inclusion of Roma in Croatia. He was a co-founder and activist in several civic organisations dedicated to the promotion of human rights and freedom of speech. He has published various books and articles on social and political topics, and translated a dozen books from English into Croatian.
Katarina Milićević is a journalist with two decades of experience in TV stations. She lives and works in Belgrade and Kragujevac. Since 2011 she works with the Centre for Nonviolent Action (CNA), a civil society organisation (CSO) engaged in cross-border peace work, and since she dedicates her work to peace activities on a permanent basis. She had supported the team before as a collaborator on the set of documentaries, as a workshoptrainer, and as a panel moderator for public forums in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, where war veterans who fought on different sides in the 1990s wars in the region of former Yugoslavia discussed their experiences.
Dr Ismet Sejfija is a Professor at the Faculty of Political Science and Dean of the Faculty of Administrative Science at the University of Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina). He holds a PhD in Political Science. He has published several books and numerous articles on the theory of civil society and social transformation in the Balkans. His work focuses on CSOs in war-to-peace transition and transformation countries, and particularly on the interaction between CSOs and state institutions. He closely collaborates with local CSOs and investigative media in the region, international research programmes, and international organisations (Friedrich Ebert Foundation, Council of Europe, European Union).
