Book launch to mark the publication of Iran and the Global Economy: Petro Populism, Islam and Economic Sanctions edited by Parvin Alizadeh and Hassan Hakimian (Routledge, 2014).
The session will focus on the economic aspects and consequences of the Iranian Revolution in general and its interaction with the international economy in particular. Many studies have to date dealt with Iran’s economic challenges, policies and performance in the post-revolutionary period but its interaction with the international economy has not received sufficient attention. Alizadeh and Hakimian highlight contributions in this volume which address the ways in which in the span of three decades, Iran’s economy has evolved from strong aspirations to develop an ‘independent economy’ to grappling with debilitating international economic sanctions. It is argued that a study of the Iranian experience can offer valuable insights and lessons for the recent events in the MENA region.
