Jasmina is an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Criminology, Oxford. Her research interests relate to youth justice, inequality, and alternative responses to youth crime.
Jasmina's DPhil research in Criminology at Oxford (funded through an ESRC doctoral studentship) offered an original empirical examination of the mechanisms behind class discrimination and the selection effects of institutions that deal with young people when they first become defined as troublesome by services.
Jasmina is currently preparing a monograph for Routledge Criminology and Criminal Justice (forthcoming 2021) based on her doctoral research. The book’s main objective is to examine how a family’s social class on one side, and organisational working practices and discourses within agencies dealing with young offenders on the other, impacts the views and decisions of practitioners that work with young people in trouble with the law and their parents, and the consequences of these effects for their future lives.
Jasmina holds an MPhil in Criminology & Criminal Justice (2015) and a DPhil in Criminology (2019) from the University of Oxford and a BA in Law (2009) from the University of Ljubljana. During her doctorate, Jasmina was the founder and convenor of the Criminology Working Group at Green Templeton College, Oxford. She also acted as a research assistant in several projects: The Adolescent to Parent Violence (APV) project, the Excluded Lives project, and the Crime and Mental Health conference. In 2015 and 2016, Jasmina organised the first two Graduate Conferences in Criminology in Oxford. Before commencing her doctorate, Jasmina worked as a judicial assistant at the District and Appellate Courts in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Her publications include articles on various topics linked to criminology. Her research is funded by the ESRC.
