Radman Selmic is completing his PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London, and his research combines political economy with the social studies of finance in order to analyse the Eurozone financial crisis. His interests are mostly focused on the asymmetric effects of financial crises, in particular how they affect underpriviledged communities in the Global North, “peripheral” countries in the economic and monetary unions, and the whole regions in the Global South. Radman has been exploring sustainable finance by focusing on the role of financial systems and instruments in the green transformation, analysing possibilities of alternative policies for addressing poverty and inequality, and relevance of the state investment banks.
He has participated and presented his work at numerous academic conferences and workshops, including the Summer Institute for Financial Derivatives organized by the Cultures of Finance group at the New York University, conferences at the LSE, Sheffield University and the Conference in Critical Finance at the University of Amsterdam.
Radman had been teaching at the School of Business, University of Leicester and the School of Finance and Management, at SOAS. In addition, as a visiting lecturer he has been teaching for several years postcolonial political economy to MA students at Goldsmiths, University of London. Prior to his MA he had spent five years in the financial sector, where his final position was the Head of Communications in the Raiffeisen Bank, subsidiary in Serbia.
