Program Developer

Marko Kljajic is a PhD student in Political Science at the University of Madison-Wisconsin where he studies cases of moral courage and resistance during violent conflict and how they can be used creatively for peacebuilding in the aftermath. In particular, he is interested in explaining both the local dynamics of rescue and restraint—how and why ordinary Bosnians helped or rescued threatened neighbors from persecution and death—and how memories of these experiences can be used to foster meaningful dialogue about reconciliation. In addition to his current position as a Program Developer of the Post-Conflict Research Center, he has worked with multiple other non-government organizations around the world in the fields of conflict prevention, human rights, and peacebuilding.
