Abstract: Kish Island is one of three 'industrial free trade zones' approved by the Majlis (Iran's Islamic Consultative Assembly) in August 1993. Kish may be small: just 5 km wide and 17 km long. Still, it is administered semi-autonomously by 'an Authority organized as a company with autonomous legal status, whose capital shall belong to the government' (Law on Administration of Free Trade-Industrial Zones, Article 5). Its very smallness and islandness lets Kish get away with such a departure from fundamentalist theocratic rule.
