Short bio's:

Jelena Jovanovic while continuing to be interested in the intersections of gender and ethnic based institutional discrimination, during her MA program at Central European University in Budapest and University of Hall in England (2012-2014), she got interested in the wider situation of Romani representations and self-representations, both at transnational, but also at national level. Specifically, she has conducted research on representation of Romani people in general and Romani women in particular in media and academic discourse.

Simona Torotcoi joined the Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations in September 2014 (Public Policy Track). Her main research interests include the study of higher education policies, especially access and participation policies. Currently she is conducting research on the implementation of the Bologna Process in Germany and Romania.

Upon completion of Roma Access Program, Bujar got selected as a Fulbright scholar and obtained his Master of Laws degree in International and Cimparative Law at the University of Pittsburg in the United States.
