The Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) has been the beneficiary of an exchange of Fulbright Scholars this academic year. Visiting since November has been Lyudmila Harutyunyan, professor and head of the Department of Sociology at Yerevan State University in Armenia. Harutyunyan’s research involves conflict resolution as a necessary component of a societal transformation to democracy.
Natalya Tovmasyan is also visiting ICAR from Armenia, where she is a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia. Her research interest is the southern Caucasus and the future of the region.
Moorad Mooradian, an affiliate faculty member with ICAR and an ICAR alumnus, works with ICAR’s Transcaucacus Work Group. He has been lecturing at Yerevan State University on war, violence, and conflict resolution, and how they apply to the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict. Mooradian was elected Armenian-American Man of the Year in 1999.
The prestigious Fulbright Scholar grant is given to approximately 750 U.S. faculty members to lecture or conduct research abroad. Approximately the same number of foreign scholars receives awards to come to the United States to do research. The program is sponsored and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.
