This is the second webinar in a series focused on free elections and models for democratic transitions. This session will review the experiences of elections in the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as highs and lows in public participation in them. Here, we will look at the constitution of the Islamic Republic and compare it to the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s 1994 declaration on free and fair elections. The webinar will then explore the pathology of barriers to free elections in Iran, in addition to methods of preventing and counteracting these problems.
This webinar, taught in Persian, was held in May 2013.
