Short presentation

A combined academic and policy experience on peace and conflict, democracy and autocracy. My research is two-tiered currently:

1. I work at Alva Myrdal Centre for Nuclear Disarmament on sanctions and international compliance.

2. I examine the long-term impact of former combatants-turned politicians on democracy and institution-building in transitory societies.

I am the convener of the internship programme for BSSc and MSSc at DPCR.

Keywords: democratization central and eastern europe hybrid regimes and democratization international sanctions peace and conflict autocratization non-proliferation western balkans nuclear disarmament

I am currently finalising two projects, to be published as books in 2024:'

- Wallensteen, Peter & Armend Bekaj (eds.) "Sanctions for nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation: moving forward", London: Routledge

- Bekaj, Armend "Former combatants, democracy, and institution-building in transitory societies: Kosovo and North Macedonia", London: Routledge
