Dr. Carlos Juárez, dean of HPU’s College of International Studies, recently returned from delivering a lecture series on “The Role of NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) in World Politics” at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic.

“ The trip was an opportunity to travel to Poland, Hungary, and Austria,” Juárez said, adding that he had visited this region extensively in 2003 and 2005 as a Fulbright lecturer.

Juárez is a contributing editor to several publications, most recently the 9th edition of Global Studies: Europe (Dushkin/McGraw-Hill, 2006), in which he reviews recent political developments in central and eastern Europe.

“ The region is undergoing significant change,” Juárez explained, “with expansion of many former communist states into the European Union, as well as a shift and consolidation to market-based economies.”

Juárez joined HPU in 1997, and became dean of the College of International Studies in 2004. He is a specialist on peace and conflict studies, global governance, and comparative politics, especially of Latin America and east and central Europe, and received his Ph.D. in Political Science from UCLA. He has been a research scholar at Oxford University, UC-San Diego, and the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. He was a Fulbright Scholar to Mexico and the Czech Republic.

Juárez is a member of the Board of Governors of the Pacific and Asian Affairs Council (PAAC) and the world affairs council for the state of Hawai‘i. He is also Fulbright Program advisor for HPU, helping to promote the flagship international educational exchange sponsored by the U.S. government.
