Ivekovic’s research interests include comparative philosophy (Asian philosophy, particularly Indian, and Western), feminist theory and feminist philosophy as well as political philosophy.
In particular, the following aspects have been of intellectual inspiration for Ivekovic’s work: contemporary European philosophy, postmodern philosophy, Orientalism in (Western) philosophy, the feminine in philosophy, issues of nation, state und citizenship, problems of nationalism, of violence and war, European identity issues, and democracy.
Ivekovic’s other interests include: literary theory and literary criticism, religion and mythology, gender studies and women writers, anthropology, and contemporary French philosophy in particular.
Ivekovic holds that the inequality of the sexes (Inégalité des sexes) and other alterities, inequalities, exclusions, subordinating inclusions (e.g. through discrimination by gender, national citizenship, ethnicity, colonization) leads to a fatal partitioning of reason ("Le partage de la raison"). On the war events on the territory of Yugoslavia she takes an explicitly anti-patriarchal, anti-racist and non-nationalist stance.
In 1997 Ivekovic published a study on gender/sex in philosophy, taking issue with Jean-François Lyotard.
From 1975 to 1991-1992, Iveković was a Lecturer in the History of Asian Philosophy and Comparative Philosophy at Zagreb University. From 1998-2003 she was a professor at Paris VIII. Since 2003 Professor in the Department of Sociology at University Jean Monnet - St.Etienne and after 2004, the Program Director at Collège international de philosophie (Paris).
