Summary/Abstract: The author argues that Jelica Belović-Bernadzikowska participated in the deployment of the idea of Europeanization of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but not strictly as part of a broader politics of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to integrate this newly acquired territory more easily into its borders. On the contrary, she rather displayed a sense of disdain toward the inefficient mechanisms of power of the imperial state which allowed a flow of corruption and nepotism in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Austro-Hungarian period, which intersected with gender, nation and/or religion, that she felt compelled to criticize.
