I am Lecturer in Public Management at the University of York (Department of Social Policy & Work). My specialisation is in public administration, public policy and regulatory governance, with particular interests in integrity governance and bureaucratic accountability. My research includes both OECD and non-OECD contexts.
I am Director of the online Masters in Public Administration at the Department of Social Policy & Work of the University of York, where I teach on courses in public management, strategic planning & management, project management, leadership & organisational change, and e-government.
I obtained a PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics (LSE) (Department of Government). At the same department, I received an MSc in Public Policy & Administration and an MRes in Research Methods in Political Science. My BA is in Political Science, from the University of Belgrade. Before coming to the University of York, I spent two years at the University College Dublin (UCD, Sutherland School of Law), as a postdoctoral Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow, after a year of teaching at the University College London (UCL) on master and undergraduate courses in public policy & public management.
I serve as Chair of the Early Career Network (ECN) of the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance, whose mission is to support early career researchers in regulatory governance to make a successful transition from studies or temporary research and teaching roles to permanent academic positions or alternative professional careers. For further information about the ECN RegGov mission and activities, please visit our website. If you are a post-doctoral fellow or research assistant, doctoral student or a master student, and if you have a question, need support, or have an idea of how to support other early career researchers, please get in touch. Do not hesitate to reach out – we are an inclusive group cherishing the values of diversity and equality, and we look forward to facilitating conversations among early career scholars no matter which corner of the world they are coming from.
If you would like to contact me, please write to: slobodan.tomic (at) york.ac.uk. If you have an inquiry about a doctoral thesis application (PhD supervision) on a topic from my range of interests, please follow the official procedure of the Department of Social Policy & Work outlined here.
