Aiming on global policy, Maria Borba Dantas (Brazil) will focus in her dissertation project at Stratification, social inequalities and world society: the argument for a peripheral constitutionalism. Her colleague, Jovana Vukcevic (Montenegro), is especially looking forward to discuss her planned project with her peers. She will focus on The price of memory: Commodifying legacies of unwanted heritage in the Balkans in an interdisciplinary perspective.
