Dr. Borislava Manojlovic is the Assistant Professor of Conflict Analysis and Resolution and Co-Director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies Asia at George Mason University Korea. She is an expert in peacebuilding, transitional justice, dealing with the past, peace education, and atrocities prevention. Before joining GMU Korea, she was both research director and faculty at Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations where she led and implemented numerous research projects that focus on peacebuilding, education, governance, and atrocities prevention. Before joining academia, she worked on minority- and reconciliation-related issues with the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in both Croatia and Kosovo for over seven years. The experience of wars in the Balkans in the 1990s and her desire to understand the roots of violent conflicts shaped her life trajectory and dedication to conflict prevention and peacemaking. Her book Education for Sustainable Peace and Conflict Resilient Communities was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2017.
Prof. Manojlovic received her master’s degree from Brandeis University and her doctorate from George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
