    She has written and co-edited books on minority protection, integration as applicable to new minorities, human rights protection and on the mapping of the new world order (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009, with T.

Based on extensive empirical research, we focus on the parliamentarisation in Kosovo in the context of a multi-stakeholder partnership (MSP). We investigate the creation, operation and effects of co-operation within an MSP called the Kosovo Assembly Support Initiative (ASI). This MSP is relevant for the study of parliamentary affairs because of its goals to help in the creation of a functioning national parliament, but also because several other national parliaments contributed to this goal within the broader post-conflict peace-building in Kosovo."

    Sporočilnost macbridovega poročila v pogojih (ne)spreminjajoče se (ne) demokratičnosti mednarodne skupnosti (The MacBride's Report and its key messages in the context of the (non-) changing (non-)democratic international community). Javnost - The Public: Journal of the European Institute for Communication and Culture 22(Supplement 1): S102-S111, 2015 (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/13183222.2015.1129211).
    Abstract: The article seeks to address the relevancy of the MacBride Report for international relations. It does so in the context of factors that can influence the development of a more democratic international community. Deriving from the structure of the contemporary international community, the article demonstrates that this community has developed asymmetrically, in spite of the unprecedented development in the fields of science and technology. As the international community is characterised by competition for influence, and the inability to implement solidarity, numerous problems remain unresolved. In such circumstances, the benefits of communications and information technology are just as conflictual as they were at the time of the writing of the MacBride Report. Instead of using technology to eliminate inequality, including through the work of international organisations, technology tends to be used by states and new (non-state) actors such as multinational companies, to strengthen their positions. This only reinforces the gap between the developed and the poor. The key messages of the MacBride Report are therefore just as relevant today as they were 35 years ago.
