Finishes: 8 December 2011Time: 5:00 PM
Venue: Russell Square: College Buildings
Type of Event: Conference

Please note this conference has had to be postponed to 7-8 December due to delays encountered in obtaining UK entry visas in Tehran.

The newly formed International Iranian Economic Association (IIEA) is pleased to announce its first international conference on Iran's Economy to be held at SOAS, University of London, on 7-8 December 2011. This conference will be hosted by the London Middle East Institute at SOAS.

The inaugural conference of the International Iranian Economic Association (IIEA) had been planned to take place on September 9-10 in SOAS, London. A number of conference speakers from Iran have been unable to secure appointments at the British Embassy soon enough for their visa applications to be processed in time for them to travel to London for the Conference and since we are anxious to have a strong contribution from Iranian academics, we have very reluctantly decided to postpone it to December. This was not an easy decision to make and we apologise for this unavoidable change of plan, but very much hope that you will still be able to participate and support the conference.

The purpose of the conference is to provide a venue for the best current research on Iran's economy and to generate information and encouragement for future high quality research in this area. All papers will be subject to assessment by the Program Committee.

In recent years, three successful conferences on the Iranian Economy have been held in the USA (at the Universities of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USC and Chicago). The London conference in 2011 builds on these initiatives to ensure high quality international research on Iran's economy continues to receive the attention and priority it merits.
