Iranians Turn Away From the Islamic Republic - Ladan Boroumand

Over forty years have passed since the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Apart from having imposed its ideology on the Iranian people in all areas of life, during this time, the Islamic Republic has fueled chaos and unrest in other parts of the world through its concept of “exporting the revolution.” Yet, as more time has passed since the Islamic Revolution, the rifts and divisions within its ruling class have increased, as has the discontent of a wide range of people with the entirety of the regime, to the extent that three nation-wide popular uprisings occurred in December-January 2017, August 2018, and November 2019.

In this article, Ladan Boroumand, co-founder and senior member of the Abdorrahman Boroumand Center for Human Rights in Iran, while analysing the policies of the Islamic Republic for expanding its power and influence in other countries, outlines Iranians’ growing dissatisfaction and turning away from its rule.
