Fulbright Scholar from Prague at Cal State L.A.

Under the auspices of the Fulbright Program, Dr. Dusan Drbohlav, associate professor of social geography and regional development from Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, will be a Fulbright Senior Visiting Scholar at California State University, Los Angeles through June 2000. Dr. Drbohlav's Fulbright visit was made possible through the strong support of Dr. Killian Ying, chair of Cal State L.A.'s Department of Geography and Urban Analysis, who has been collaborating with him on his most recent research projects focusing on immigration issues.

For over 50 years, the Fulbright Program-sponsored and funded by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs-has been recognized as the flagship program in international educational exchange. All Fulbright scholars undergo rigorous peer review administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars. The presidentially appointed J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board formulates policy guidelines and makes the final selections of all grantees.

Dr. Drbohlav's expertise is in migration and other forms of population mobility, especially in international migration. He has recently conducted extensive research on "Immigration Policies and Practices in the United States and in the Czech Republic: What One Can Discover, Learn and Contribute." Additionally, he has published many papers and presented numerous lectures and workshops on related topics.

Dr. Drbohlav, who received his Csc. (Ph.D. equivalent) in Geography in 1990 from Charles University, has conducted research in migration at the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and the Catholic University Leuven before assuming his present teaching position at Charles University in 1993.
