Gorana Mlinarević


Gorana Mlinarević is a feminist activist, human rights defender and researcher on post-war issues and experiences affecting women primarily in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region of the former Yugoslavia. Her interdisciplinary research often explores intersections and tensions between identity politics and economic and social realities of the post-war societies and societies undergoing political, social and economic transformations.

She is also an expert in sexual violence witness evidence, gender-based crimes and gender justice in international criminal law. She is the author of two leading social scientific studies of conflict-related sexual violence evidence, as well as numerous publications in leading international criminal law and human rights journals and collections. She has provided expert evidence in this area to some of the international UN established tribunals/courts and investigative mechanisms.

”Whoever is afraid of feminism, is afraid to admit and accept that, fundamentally, women are strong beings. In various societies, over centuries, political leaders have made use of many skills and tricks to keep women power under control. On the other hand, power comes with responsibility – always. Admitting that you are strong means taking responsibility for this power. Sometimes that overwhelms.”
