Ioana Iulia Blaga

Research Assistant

Ioana-Iulia Blaga is currently specializing in Counter-Terrorism and Feminist Security Studies and she is an Editor for the Romanian Journal of Society and Politics. As a Political Science PhD. Student at the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration, Bucharest (SNSPA), she is challenging the notorious “gender blindness” of the Terrorism Studies by focusing on identifying what are the roles of women and the gender-power relationships within five terrorist organizations, as a continuation of her dissertation – cross-domain research from Counter-Terrorism and Intelligence fields. Ioana interned and worked at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), NATO, (Mons, Belgium) in Force Protection and Command and Control (C2).

”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.”
