Jelena Subotic is Professor in the Department of Political Science at Georgia State University (PhD, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2007). Dr. Subotic writes broadly about international relations theory, memory politics, human rights, transitional justice, international ethics, state identity, and the politics of the Western Balkans. Her first book, Hijacked Justice: Dealing with the Past in the Balkans (Cornell University Press, 2009) examines the contested way in which international norms of transitional justice were appropriated by domestic political elites in the Western Balkans in the aftermath of the Yugoslav wars.  This book explains how East European countries after the collapse of communism pursued new strategies of Holocaust remembrance where the memory, symbols, and imagery of the Holocaust became appropriated to represent crimes of communism.

Prof. Subotic’s  research has appeared in a number of academic and public policy journals, including International Studies Quarterly, European Journal of International Relations, Journal of Peace Research, Foreign Policy Analysis, and many others. Dr. Subotic is a recipient of a number of research grants, including from the National Science Foundation and USAID. She is also a frequent commentator on war crimes and the politics of the Balkans for CNN, BBC, and other international outlets.
