How do we explain the differences in which victim groups are recognized and redressed in a post-war state?
Speaker Jessie Barton-Hronešová (University of Oxford) is ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Oxford Department of International Development. Her research focuses on post-war dealing with the past in East and South East Europe. She authored and edited several studies on identity politics and is the author of The Struggle of Redress: Victim Capital in Bosnia and Herzegovina (2020, Palgrave Macmillan).
This chapter introduces the key components of victim capital as international salience, moral authority and mobilization resources, as well as how they combine. Finally, it describes the used methods and conducted fieldwork, before outlining the structure of the book.
