About Us

Through its various activities - which include innovative research, policy analysis, local and international conferences, workshops, symposia, colloquia, occasional lectures, book launches, film presentations, exhibitions, and cultural activities - the Ezri Center wishes to provide a better and deeper understanding of the complexity and the undercurrent processes of Iran and other countries of the Persian Gulf as well as the region as a whole.

The Center also draws on the vibrant local Iranian and Arab communities, as well as the cooperation and collaboration of other Institutes and Centers, for events aimed at the dissemination of and familiarity with the Iranian and Arab arts and culture.
