Hana Srebotnjak

Research Assistant, ETHNICGOODS project, ERC


Hana Srebotnjak was born in Slovenia, an ex-Yugoslav Republic. Tracing the memory of the wars that happened in Yugoslavia in order to understand conflicts in general has marked her on a personal level and has influenced her academic interests later on. To that end, Hana studied modern history (MA) at St Andrews in Scotland and International Security (MA) at IBEI in Spain. She has also moved around a lot, which has made her particularly sensitive to the topic of immigration integration. She is also passionate about the arts, particularly music, dance and literature. Hana is currently a research assistant at the ERC project "States, Nationalism, and the Relationship between Ethnic Diversity and Public Goods Provision (ETHNICGOODS)", coordinated by Matthias vom Hau.
