Oliver Ivanović (1 April 1953 – 16 January 2018) was a Kosovo Serb politician. He was the president of the civic initiative SDP operating in Kosovo.

Ivanović served as the State Secretary of the Ministry for Kosovo and Metohija from 2008 to 2012. He was also member of the Coordinating Center for Kosovo and Metohija.

Ivanović was arrested in January 2014 on suspicion of war crimes and sentenced to nine years in jail on 21 January 2016 for war crimes by judges from the EULEX Kosovo. However, the Appeals Court in Pristina annulled the guilty verdict on 12 February 2017 and ordered a new trial.

Ivanović was shot six times in a drive-by shooting at 08:15 on 16 January 2018 while entering his office in North Mitrovica.[1] He was 64 years old.[2][3]
