    About the Iranian Studies Group at MIT

    The Iranian Studies Group at MIT (ISG) is a non-partisan, non-profit, academic organization with the aim of promoting Iranian civil society through conducting research on issues related to Iranian native and expatriate societies. Our
    research projects focus on the cultural, social, economic, and political development of the Iranian society. By actively publicizing our findings in a format that is accessible for the community at large, we aim to bridge the gap between research, public knowledge, and policy-making.

    ISG promotes an analytical approach to long-term issues that are important to Iranians worldwide, from an independent Iranian perspective, and within a
    democratic spirit. ISG aims at creating a dynamic network of academics, community leaders and interested individuals working on an analytical understanding of contemporary Iranian issues, regardless of their social,
    political or religious beliefs. To accomplish these goals, ISG is committed to presenting the public with diverse perspectives on issues related to its mission through research projects, lecture series and article publications
