About Me

Farzan Sabet - Headshot 02

I am a global historian and postdoctoral fellow at the Global Governance Centre, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland, working on the European Research Council funded project “Bombs, Banks and Sanctions: A Sociology of the Transnational Legal Field of Nuclear Nonproliferation”.

I study the intersection of global regimes, Middle East politics, and U.S. foreign policy through the lenses of history, IR, sociology, and law. I was previously a Nuclear Security Predoctoral Fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, Stanford University, and a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Government, Georgetown University. I have a Ph.D in International History from The Graduate Institute, Geneva.

My commentary on Middle East politics and U.S. foreign policy has been featured in The Washington Post, War on the Rocks, and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, among other outlets. (Please See: Academic CV)
