September 1, 2016 - September 2, 2016

Central European University, Budapest, Hungary

Given the surprising 2013 victory of President Hassan Rouhani, the 2015 nuclear deal, and the centrist upset in the 2016 parliamentary elections, social research on Iran is arguably in need of reassessment and renovation. The Center for Global Communication Studies at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, the University of California-Los Angeles’ Center for Near Eastern Studies, and Central European University’s School of Public Policy are pleased to announce the upcoming conference Surveying Iran: The Future of Social Research after the Nuclear Thaw. The conference is currently seeking presentations on topics such as: In-depth analysis of previously under-studied institutions; innovative use of existing and under-utilized data sets from official sources; and the production of new data sets on Iran from surveys, data scraping, or other collection methods.
