Circulation of Political Elite in Post-revolutionary Iran: An Empirical Investigation

When: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Where: 341 Eggers Hall


A Book Talk with Mehrzad Boroujerdi

Based on a recently completed fourteen-year research project, which has generated the largest database on political elite anywhere in the Middle East, Dr. Mehrzad Boroujerdi will share some of his findings about Iran’s truculent clerics and their lay allies. He will discuss the age, gender and educational profile, revolutionary pedigree and incumbency rate of elected and appointed elite to ascertain the question of generational change in Iran after the 1979 Revolution.
