Dr. Chris Dolan, professor of political science and director of the Center for Political History, was recently notified by the Institute for International Education/U.S. Department of State that he received a U.S. Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award to the Republic of North Macedonia. South East European University in Tetovo will be his host institution, where Dr. Dolan will conduct research in rule of law, security sector reform, and Euro-Atlantic security through the grant that runs until June 2020. He will be working with Dr. Blerim Reka, Macedonian Ambassador and Chief of Mission of North Macedonia to the European Union, on NATO collective security measures and on the alignment of defense and foreign policy in Macedonia’s case for E.U. membership.
His previous Fulbright award was with the University of Prishtina in Kosovo (2019–20).
