Associate Research Fellow, Henry Jackson Society; External Fellow, Belgrade Centre for Security Policy

Helena is an associate research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society and an external fellow at the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy. She recently completed a PhD in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her research focuses on the relationship between propaganda and violence against civilians. In her thesis, Helena examined the role propaganda played during the Yugoslav Wars and produced a model for studying propaganda that details the key phases, functions, discourses, and propaganda techniques (the model itself applies to other contexts). Helena also served as a Manager at the Centre for International Studies at the LSE. Prior to her PhD, Helena completed an MPhil in Political Theory at the University of Oxford and holds a BA in Politics from the University of Belgrade.
