Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Bracic joined the OU Political Science department in Fall 2014.  Her research is predominantly in the field of comparative politics, and focuses on questions of human rights, discrimination, the persistence of social exclusion, and ground-level effectiveness of human rights institutions, such as NGOs.  Most of her research relies on lab-in-field and survey experiments.  In order to gather data from severely underrepresented populations, such as the Roma in Central Europe, Dr. Bracic uses innovative approaches to measurement, like videogames.  Her research was recently published in the American Political Science Review.  Dr. Bracic is a co-founder of Community Engagement + Experiments Lab and serves on its faculty advisory board.  Dr. Bracic earned her PhD from the Politics Department at NYU in 2013.
