Hoover's Iran Specialist on US-Iran Relations


SAN FRANCISCO, CA – September 5, 2006 – Bay Area Iranian-American Democrats (BAIAD) today announced it will be hosting a public event about the future prospects of US-Iran relations with Dr. Abbas Milani, an Iran specialist at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. This event will be held on Sunday, September 17 at the SEIU office at 2302 Zanker Road, San Jose, CA 95131, beginning at 4:00pm.


“How to handle the Iran dilemma will arguably be the most consequential foreign policy decision to be made by the US government for the next several years,” said BAIAD President Mehrdad Moayedzadeh.  He added: “In the absence of good information, it is very easy to be misled and very hard to make good decisions. Today, there is an alarming information gap in the United States about Iran, not just among the public, but also among politicians. As someone whose job is to be an expert about Iran, Dr. Milani is one of the perfect candidates to fill some of that information gap.”


Dr. Abbas Milani is Director of the Iranian Studies Program at Stanford University and a visiting professor in the department of political science. In addition, Dr. Milani is a research fellow and co-director of the Iran Democracy Project at the Hoover Institution. His expertise is U.S./Iran relations, Iranian cultural, political, and security issues. Milani has written numerous books in English and Persian. His articles have been published in numerous journals, magazines, and newspapers including the San Francisco Chronicle and The Washington Quarterly, among others, and he has been interviewed for radio and television, appearing on the BBC, CNN, KQED and Radio France, among others. The event is set for Sunday, September 17 at the SEIU office at 2302 Zanker Road, San Jose, CA 95131. The program will be in English and will run from 4:00-6:30pm. Doors will open at 3:30pm.
