Vittorio Felci graduated in Political Science (2005) and obtained a second-level Master in Middle East Studies at the University of Urbino “Carlo Bo” (2007). He earned a Ph.D in  History of International Relations from the University of Florence (2011), with a dissertation on the impact of human rights on the Anglo-American approach towards Iran in the Seventies. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Modern World History and Mediterranean Studies of the University of Szeged (2011-2013), where he taught Cold War History to undergraduate students. He specializes in the US and UK involvement in the Middle East in the post-war era. His work gives particular attention to US-Iran and UK-Iran relations in the Cold War period and integrates the study of official diplomacy with societal dynamics. He has recently developed his previous research into a broader project which looks at the development of Iran's nuclear program through its connections with the West.
