Fulbright in Dubrovnik
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
In May, I will be teaching a class at Dubrovnik International University in Croatia. The class will focus on the legal and political environment in which American companies do business, and will be offered as part of a university series on “Cases in Diplomacy.” The teaching appointment came through the Fulbright Specialists Program, a program created in 2000 to complement the traditional Fulbright Scholar Program by providing short-term academic opportunities to prominent U.S. faculty and professionals.
Croatia is a new democracy, born after it broke away from Yugoslavia in 1991 and after it endured a war that ended in 1995 with the Dayton Peace Accords. Now, 17 years later, Croatia is preparing for accession to the European Union. In the class, I will have the chance to talk with young Croatians about legal issues that affect American business, and them — I’ll let you know what’s on their minds.
