Slobodan Tomic joined the UCD College of Social Sciences and Law in 2017, as a Post-Doctoral Marie Curie Fellow. His research project (2017-2019) analyses the interplay between government and integrity regulators (ombudsmen, ethics commissions, information commissioners, and state audit offices), across two developed and two developing countries - Ireland, Uruguay, Jamaica and Costa Rica. Co-funded by EU Horizon 2020 and the Irish Research Council (IRC), the project intends to contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda, in particular towards its 16th Sustainable Development Goal - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. Slobodan's expertise lies broadly in the fields of public policy, public administration and regulation, with a particular focus on integrity policies, bureaucratic politics and accountability. His empirical interests relate to both OECD and non-OECD democracies. He holds a PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science (Department of Government, 2016), where he had previously earned a Master in Research Methods in Political Science (2011), and an MSc in Policy Policy & Administration (2010). His BA is in Political Science, from the University of Belgrade (2009).
