Most people can search for information, but not everyone can conduct research.
Everyone can go to the library or use variety of internet search engines to look for data and information. However, to interpret the meanings of their findings in order to achieve new understandings for practical purposes, to establish facts and reach new conclusions, to revise theories and policies in light of new facts, to predict future political developments and events, or just to increase the stock of knowledge of a particular issue or concern requires analytical skills, theoretical and methodological knowledge, practical experience, academic training, and the ability to think critically and be able to read between and behind the lines.
As the owner and the principal writer and editor of Iran Review, I have more than 40 years of political and academic experience. I have lived through the 1979 Iranian Revolution and been active in several Iranian and non-Iranian political organizations in North America and Europe for many years. I have been studying political science (from undergraduate to Ph.D. level), researching , and teaching in Canada since 1990.
As a political scientist and instructor, I have researched and taught a variety of university-level courses in such fields and sub-fields as Iranian & Middle Eastern History and Politics, Histories & Politics of Islam, International Relations, Political Economy, Comparative Politics, Human Rights and Equity Studies, Law, and Canadian Government and Politics.
As a researcher, I have been involved in many projects related to socio-political transformation in the Middle East, Iran, refugees and diaspora communities, globalization, and political economy. Furthermore, I have vast experience coordinating research projects.
I will use my extensive theoretical, political, research, and teaching knowledge and experience to provide you with unbiased, factual, critical, and sound understanding of political developments in Iran and other Middle Eastern countries.
