Article by Fulbright Schuman scholar Dalia Dassa Kaye on her research on Iran and visiting fellowship at CMES

In the article, "From LA to Lund: The 'Iran Challenge' from a (surprisingly) Swedish Perspective" (published on 13 June), Dalia reflects on her research on shifting European perceptions and policies toward Iran at a time of great geopolitical flux globally and political change within Europe itself. She also writes about her time living in Lund and conducting research and policy work at CMES.

Of course country selection should also be linked to the project content, but what’s most critical is finding a supportive host who is willing to integrate the Fulbright scholar and encourage interactions with the host’s community.
