Professor Haley Receives Fulbright to Lecture in Romania

Edward Haley, acting director of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights and the W.M. Keck Foundation Professor of International Strategic Studies, has been awarded a Fulbright Senior Specialists grant to lecture at the Romanian Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for two weeks in May.

The Senior Specialists grant provides short-term academic opportunities, from two to six weeks, for U.S. faculty and professionals. Haley will lecture on U.S. foreign policy and strategic studies, conduct a seminar on diplomacy and military strategy, and cover a number of international crises using the case study method and simulations, similar to the popular classes he developed at CMC, in which students role-play toward peace settlements, portraying negotiators from various nations.

About the chance to work with the Diplomatic Academy, Haley says: “There’s a great deal to learn as well as to share: Representatives of small states are often more skillful diplomats than their counterparts from the great powers. Like the prospect of hanging, being small concentrates the mind.”

Haley was appointed a Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., last spring, where he completed his forthcoming book, Strategies of Dominance. (http://www.claremontmckenna.edu/news/pressreleases/article.asp?article_id=380). He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Stanford University, and a Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University.
