Iranian-Americans have often claimed that their number exceeds a million. Yet, the latest US Census puts the figure at about 400,000. Professor Amirahmadi’s talk will focus on the politics behind this discrepancy, explaining which side is right and why, what causes the divergence, how the number politics is affecting the community, and what has been done to correct the census. It also explains why such efforts have only marginally succeeded and what might be done to change the status quo.

He has also served as a Senior Associate Member at Oxford University in the UK. Dr. Amirahmadi has published over 20 books and numerous articles on Iran, the Middle East, and US-Iran relations. He is a frequent speaker at international conferences, and his advice is sought by governments, multilateral agencies, private companies, and international media.
