Georgia State Professor Receives Fulbright Grant

An assistant professor of criminal justice at Georgia State University has received a Fulbright Scholar grant to research and study in Bosnia-Herzegovina for a year. 

Lisa Muftić’s work will focus on violence against women in the region that once comprised the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

Dr. Muftić is one of 1,100 faculty and professionals nationally who will travel abroad to lecture and conduct research through the Fulbright Program, which is sponsored by the US State Department.

Muftić says she hopes her research will help enhance the education of students at the University of Sarajevo, where she’ll be working primarily. Her research will mostly work to fill gaps in current literature regarding the prevalence of violence against women, public policy and the availability of victim services.
