An expert panel will discuss “Changing Perspectives on Iran."
 
This event will discuss the recent unrest in Iran from a range of perspectives: Scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds will examine the social, economic, political, regional and international implications of the protests and will attempt to explain their causes, temporality and extent. The discussion will also consider the way different layers of the political establishment have responded and whether or not they will have any mid- and long-term local, regional and international repercussions.
 
The participating scholars study and teach on a range of topics including: modern Iran and its economics and pro-regime cultural producers; Gulf politics; the Middle East; and U.S. foreign policy.
 
Participants will include:
  • Djavad Salehi-Isfahani, professor of economics, Virginia Tech; visiting research scholar, Sharmin and Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies, Princeton University
