Recent PhD graduate, Danijel Baturina, shares his doctoral research and reflections on the PhD process on the EJEB

EMES member Danijel Baturina is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Social Policy at Faculty of Law, University of Zagreb. His doctoral research was closely linked to two of the EMES projects, namely WILCO (Welfare Innovations at Local Leven in favour of Cohesion) and TSI (Third Sector Impact - The Contribution of the Third Sector to Europe’s Socio-economic Development). We asked Danijel to share the main ideas in his dissertation which researched the impact of the third sector and volunteering on socio-economic development of Croatia. The result was the latest post in the EMES Junior Experts Blog (EJEB) entitled “Impact of the Third Sector on socio-economic development of Republic of Croatia.”  

As you know, EJEB aims to feature the ongoing work of PhD students from the EMES PhD Network. Danijel has participated in the fourth and fifth editions of the EMES PhD Summer School.

Best of luck to Danijel in his future endeavors and we count on your sustained support to EMES!
