Program Development Consultant

Maria holds a Master’s in Sociology and Social Anthropology from Central European University in Budapest and a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from The New School for Social Research in New York City. Her philosophical studies and thesis as an undergraduate focused on the meaning of radical evil in the 20th century, with an emphasis on totalitarian regimes, particularly fascism, and their impact on the fabric of social and ethical life. Her master’s thesis traces a cultural product – an ethnographic film produced for British television about the 1992-1995 Bosnian war – from its production in BiH during the war, to its wider implications and impacts. Maria has worked in communications and program management with Bosnian and American NGOs and NPOs.
