Ivan Stefanovski

PhD candidate

I hold a bachelor degree in Law and an LL.M. degree in Constitutional Law, both from the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. I started my Ph.D. in Constitutional Law at the same university in 2013.  At the beginning of my career, I started working as a member of the junior teaching staff at the Justinianus Primus Faculty of Law, giving classes and tutorials in Constitutional Law, Political Systems and Political Parties and Interest Groups. I later worked for several domestic and international NGOs working on issues such as elections and electoral models, media law, human rights, rule of law, freedom of information, free access to justice and similar issues. I am also a member of several international foundations and groups. I started my Ph.D. in Political Science and Sociology at the Scuola Normale Superiore in 2014, working on contemporary social movements in Southeast Europe
