After the office closed down in 2008, he worked on his Master of European Law in Zagreb from 2008 to 2010. He has received a number of scholarships from Bosnian governments, as well as the US State Department (Student Exchange Programme, 2005 – 2006) and the EU Commission (BASILEUS Scholarship, 2008 – 2010).
Currently, his research focuses on the EU and ASEAN countries and their mutual relationships, with a view of how these contacts have shaped regional development and investment policies. With the analysis of international investment agreements, he would like to find out how the socially desirable policies and sustainable development have been introduced in the agreements themselves, and the practice of relevant actors in international relations.
