Abstract: With India slated to become a major economic power in the Asian region and according to RAND Corporation, could position itself in a strategic political actor in the affairs of the region, if its economy continues to sustain growth levels of 6-7 %. The economy is at around 8.5% at the moment. In this context it is imperative for India's policy makers to have a credible energy security strategy.
India has been active in negotiations to build natural gas pipeline from Iran thru Pakistan to India to boost its growing energy hungry economy. Iran's geopolitics is a major concern and it is crucial for Indian policy makers to understand and analyze the political risks while dealing with Iran, which has been termed as a rogue state by the United States.
This paper makes an attempt to achieve two goals:
1. A study of the hardliner and reformist elements in the making of Iranian foreign policy and the central difficulty in its analysis.
2. An attempt to understand the political risk analysis of Iran in the context India’s vigorous pursuit of building a pipeline from that nation.

Abstract: The Iran-Iraq War also called “The Imposed War” by Iranians is considered the longest conventional war in modern times. At least one million deaths are associated with the Iranian side alone. Given the number of military and civilian deaths and injuries, it is also one of the bloodiest wars in modern history. Apart from the significant loss of life and the immense physical damage caused by the war, it also caused major shifts in Iranian society. Psychological distress from war is harmful and alters societies, regardless of racial or cultural background. Trauma associated with the war in Iran has left physical and mental marks on individuals that still exist today. Whether individuals directly fought in the war or not, were victims of bombs and missiles, lost loved ones and/or lived in constant fear, they were deeply effected as a result of this conflict. As such, this extreme stress has had a wide-scale effect on Iranian society. Beyond the complex psychological impact of the Iran-Iraq War, it has changed the nation’s culture and the perception of its people regarding domestic and international issues. By ignoring the influence of this bloody war on Iranian society regarding factors such as Iranian culture, perception, policies and politics, the international community’s understanding of this complex country will remain opaque on many levels. This paper seeks to examine the realities of the war as perceived by Iranians and its transformative effect on Iranian society in various areas including culture, perception and domestic and international policies.

Abstract: Media plays an important part in constructing identities both with respect to how one views the self and how one is historically, ethnically, and culturally perceived by others. In our today’s media frenzy world, there is no shortage of perspectives and ideologies being presented via the various media outlets available. This is a critical qualitative study focusing on examining three documentaries that hone in on discovering the Iranian “other”: i) who Iranian people are versus the images the Islamic Republic and the Western media project about Iranians in Iran; ii) how Iranians in the US have been affected by the assumptions made about them through media and political conflicts between Iran and the US.
