Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Protests in Iran and the Future of the Islamic Republic

Protests in Iran and the Future of the Islamic Republic

November 04, 2022 | 11:00 am to 12:00 pm | Middle East Program

About the Event

Over the last month, Iran has experienced a surge in protests following the death of Mahsa Amini at the hands of Iran’s morality police. Led by women of all ages, protests directed against the morality police and Iran’s draconian laws against women’s expression have evolved to widespread protests against the regime itself across wide sectors of society. In this event, we will speak with experts on women’s political movements in Iran who will shed some light on the role the women’s movement has played in Iran leading up to the protests, and how we can understand what is happening on the ground in the historical context of political contention in the Islamic Republic.
