Danilo Mandić is a Postdoctoral College Fellow in the Department of Sociology, where he lectures on war, forced migration, political sociology and research methods. His research focuses on social movements, nationalism, ethnic relations, civil war and organized crime. He is interested in conceptualizing organized crime as a neglected non-state actor and in understanding the interrelations of states, social movements and illicit flows of people, goods and ideas in regions with separatist disputes.

He co-edited a volume (with Tamara Pavasović Trošt) on youth in Southeast Europe, and led a BCARS research team to study Syrian refugees on the Balkan Route. His book Gangsters and Other Statesmenon the role of organized crime in separatist movements of the post-Cold War period, is forthcoming with Princeton U.P.
