Juárez is being hosted by Masaryk University in the city of Brno, in the Czech Republic. He is delivering a series of lectures on “International Conflict Management: Mediating the Hardest and Most Intractable Cases.” He will also complete an external review of Masaryk University’s M.A. program in International Relations and European Studies, and he will help organize a conference on Central European politics to be held there later this month.

Juárez was previously a Fulbright Scholar to Mexico (1999-2000) and also to the Czech Republic in fall 2003.

Juárez received his Ph.D. from UCLA and joined HPU in 1997. A specialist on comparative and international politics, global governance, and peace and conflict studies, he has been a visiting professor at the University of the Andes, in Bogotá, Colombia, and is a member of the Board of Governors of the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council. While in Europe, he is also visiting universities in Ljubljana and Koper, Slovenia, and in Cádiz, Granada, and Salamanca, Spain, to explore potential new student exchange programs for HPU.

Fulbright is the flagship international academic exchange program of the U.S. government, sponsored by the Department of State and established in 1946 to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.” The program offers grants for faculty members as well as graduate students, both U.S. and international.

Other HPU faculty Fulbrighters include Dr. Grace Cheng (political science), Dr. Ed Klein (applied linguistics), Dr. Niti Villinger (management), Dr. James Whitfield (communication), and assistant professors of ESL Sally La Luzerne-Oi and Catherine Sajna.

For 2005-06, HPU is hosting a visiting Fulbright scholar from the Ukraine, Dr. Marina Tsehelska, and in spring and summer 2006 will host professor of political science, Dr. Pavel Pseja of the Czech Republic.
