Damjan Krnjević Mišković
Professor of Practice; Director for Policy Research, Analysis and Publications (IDD)
It’s a privilege to be back in academia. It’s an exciting time to be in the heart of a region I’m convinced will continue to grow in importance as a critical seam of international relations in our complicated era of quickening geopolitical transformation. I feel honored to be able to share with the ADA University community—its students, first and foremost—nearly two decades’ worth of experience as a UN and Serbian policymaker and diplomat, think-tank director and researcher, and editor of world class journals on both sides of the Atlantic.
Damjan Krnjević Mišković has served as a senior political strategist, diplomatic adviser, and crisis counselor at both international and national levels. He came to ADA University from Belgrade, Serbia, serving as Executive Director of the Center for International Relations and Sustainable Development (CIRSD) and Editor of its journal Horizons. Former appointments include: Senior Special Advisor to the President of the UN General Assembly; Senior Adviser and Chief Speechwriter to Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia; Director of Policy Planning and Analysis in the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Serbia; Special Adviser to the President of the Republic of Serbia; Fellow in European Studies at the Nixon Center (now Center for the National Interest); and Managing Editor of The National Interest.
