Peter Stamatov (MA 1995-96)
Associate Professor of Social Research and Public Policy and Distinguished Researcher and Santander Endowed Chair at the Carlos III-Juan March Institute for the Social Sciences (Madrid)
"I remember the year I spent at CEU as an exciting time of exposure to ideas and people new to me. Some of the courses I took formed the questions and interests I have pursued in my research ever since. The M.A. thesis I wrote became my first peer-reviewed publication in an international social science journal. I remember also long discussions on various issues (as well as fabulous parties) with people from Europe and the United States I met at CEU. Some of them are still my dear friends even today."
