My name is Touraj Eghtesad and I am a writer, thinker and human being. I am of French-Iranian descent and grew up in the United States. I hold a BA in Spanish and Politics from the University of Bath (UK) and a MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Netherlands). At the moment, I am a Junior Fellow at the Vrije Universiteit.
I want to connect global trends to local events, based no my extensive network in France, the UK, Spain, Bolivia, Tunisia, the Netherlands and beyond. I hope to shed light on processes of social change in these exciting times.
