In 2011, Dolidze was awarded a Mario Einaudi Dissertation Fellowship to spend a semester as a Visiting Doctoral Scholar at Sciences Po Law School in Paris, and to conduct research at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. Currently, Dolidze serves as a Fellow at Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, and is a Resident Fellow at Telluride House at Cornell University.
