    various aspects of the Diaspora. As Iranians in the
    Diaspora continue to build roots in their new
    countries and a generation of hyphenated Iranians
    (Iranian-Americans, British-Iranians, French-Iranians,
    etc.) enter their mid-twenties, the social and
    psychological implications of this new community need
    to be addressed.
