Congratulations to Dr. Josip Glaurdic for being awarded a European Research Council Starting Grant of 1.5 million Euros from among the nearly 3000 applicants in the 2016 call.

The scheme targets promising researchers who have the proven potential of becoming independent research leaders. The grant will fund Dr. Glaurdic’s latest project titled "Electoral Legacies of War: Political Competition in Postwar Southeast Europe”.
Dr Glaurdic is a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow and a fellow of Clare College. He received his PhD in political science from Yale University, and his work is primarily concerned with the European Union, its role in international relations and its policies in South-eastern Europe.
