Since 2009, he has been working outside academia as a researcher and policy analyst in several non-governmental organisations in Montenegro. He is currently serving as a member of the Academic Council of Civic Alliance and a part-time consultant in Trust Agency, both located in Montenegro. As a regular contributor to numerous popular media outlets in the former Yugoslav region, he is dedicated to critically engaged, public sociology.
