Demographic and Economic Trends in Iran

Dr. Djavad Salehi-Ishfahani, professor of
economics at Virginia Tech and visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution,
and Dr. Richard Cincotta, consulting demographer to the Long Range Analysis
Unit at the National Intelligence Council, will join us for a discussion on the
demographic and economic trends in Iran. Age structure can mark some
key political challenges and opportunities for the future.  It is a
significant indicator of risk of conflict and prospects for
democratization.  How is their economy developing? What does their
demographic makeup indicate for Iran’s
social, political and economic future?  What impact will these trends have
upon their relationship with the U.S. and the wider international
community?
