The event will utilise a mixture of formal academic presentations, workshops and poster presentations accompanied by a specialist exhibition to expand understanding of the situation in the country.
Iran's oil reserves make it a major player in the global economy. Despite being a major middle eastern power with a population over 70 million, many aspects of everyday life in Iran are seldom heard about.
In November 2012, Oxford Brookes will be a major supporter of a landmark conference run and sponsored by University College London that will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to participate in discussions on urban growth and development in Iran covering a range of themes from socio-cultural drivers to urban planning, resilience and sustainability concerns. The conference aims to analyse the dynamics of urban change and management that have had a significant effect on urbanism traditions both within its own borders and externally.
Dr Ramin Keivani – Reader in International Land Policy and Urban Development in the Department of Real Estate and Construction and Director of the Real Estate & Land Policy Group in OISD - is to represent Oxford Brookes University at the conference, providing academic support as a member of the scientific committee and chairing a dedicated session on sustainable urban development in the country.
