Iran and the Moral Economy
Graduate Talk by Dr. Morteza Afghah, Shahid Chamran University
Monday, September 12, 2016 | 2 PM | FIU Modesto A. Maidique Campus | SIPA 502

Dr. Afghah will give a graduate talk on his current research on the non-economic factors that impact the Iranian economy.  He will examine what role Islam plays in the development and economy of contemporary Iran.

Dr. Morteza Afghah is an assistant professor of economics at Shahid Chamran University (formerly Jondi Shapour University) in Ahvaz, Iran. He obtained his Ph.D. in the field of economics in 1998 from the University of Birmingham, UK.  Dr. Afghah’s main area of research is economic development with a focus on developing countries, in particular Iran. Defining the term “development,” analyzing the condition of developing countries, and studying the effects of socio-cultural values (chiefly religious ones) on economic growth are topics that he has concentrated on.  Dr. Afghah has written several books and articles on these subjects in English and Persian.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 305-348-7266.
