Dr. Sabah Mofidi

Dr. Sabah Mofidi‘s academic work on the political function of religion, with a focus on Kurdistan and Iran is important and timely. His profile fits very well within the interdisciplinary environment of NIAS, which offers a free and safe have for intellectual thought.

We do believe Dr. Mofidi’s work will be a great contribution to the NIAS Community and, in return, a fellowship at NIAS can offer him a solid ground to continue working on his academic publications and pursue his scholarly career.
