New Iran Social Survey paper by Daniel Tavana and Kevan Harris for EIRG

Politics Ph.D. student Daniel Tavana and Kevan Harris, assistant professor in UCLA’s department of Sociology, have written a new report for the European Iran Research Group (EIRG) titled, “Voter Behavior and Political Mobilization in Iran: Findings from the Iran Social Survey.”  The report provides descriptive findings related to the demographic determinants of turnout and vote choice in Iran.

A politically unaffiliated non-profit organization registered in Sweden, the EIRG aims, through research, training programs, exchanges and facilitation, to promote greater understanding and interaction between Iran and European Countries. We aim to support sustainable development and cooperation through close cooperation between stakeholders across sectors.
