Biljana Meiske completed her PhD in Economics in 2022 from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance. She comes to the EUI after a one-year postdoc at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council of Italy in Rome. Her research uses insights from behavioural economics and experimental methods to study conflict and cooperative behaviour. Her previous work studied the drivers of opposition to new immigration among established immigrants, punishing behaviour in social networks, the importance of monetary status for enjoyed influence, the effects of economic shocks on conflict behaviour etc.

During the Fellowship at the EUI, Biljana wants to pursue her research on understanding the origins and consequences of discriminatory behaviour and the policies employed to limit it. She is particularly interested in cultural policies and collective memory institutions and their effect on the norms and behaviours in the societies subjected to them. At the EUI, Biljana plans to collaborate with the researchers centred around ‘Democracy in the 21st century’ research cluster.
