Juarez garners third Fulbright

by Kalamalama staff

 

Dr. Carlos Juarez professor of political science and acting dean of HPU’s College of International Studies has been awarded a Fulbright Senior Specialists grant to spend part of the spring and fall 2005 semesters in Central Europe.

Fulbright Senior Specialists are part of a new program of short-term grants designed to provide U.S. faculty with opportunities to collaborate with professional counterparts on curriculum and faculty development, institutional planning, and a variety of other activities.

 

The award will allow Juárez to deliver a series of lectures on comparative and international politics at Masaryk University in Brno (MUB), the Czech Republic, as well as Maribor, Solvenia, and Lviv, Ukraine. He will also complete an external review and assessment of MUB’s master’s degree program in international relations and European studies, and will help organize a conference on central European politics to be held there in October 2005.

Juárez was a Fulbright Senior Specialist to the Czech Republic (2003), a Fulbright Senior Scholar to Mexico (1999-2000), and is currently president of the Fulbright Association Hawai‘i state chapter. He has also been a visiting professor at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, and was recently elected to the Board of Governors of the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council.

Juárez received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles and teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in peace and conflict studies, global governance, and comparative political economies of developing nations.

Juárez has been a consultant to the U.S. Institute of Peace, a federal agency in Washington, D.C., and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, an intergovernmental organization based in Stockholm, Sweden.

The prestigious Fulbright program is the flagship international educational program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and was established in 1946 to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
