The Iranian nation is made up of diverse religious and ethnic groups. In a sense, Iran can be described as a multi-ethno-religious society. Religious and ethnic diversity throughout history has been a source of classification, difference and discrimination among the general public, which has manifested itself in a variety of ways in accordance with the types of government in place. In this article, the author examines the legal context of undue discrimination against religious and ethnic minorities in the Islamic Republic constitution.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

I give my utmost thanks to Tavaana for these truly useful and constructive courses. In every class I have taken, I have seen students taking part not only from inside and outside Iran but from Afghanistan and Tajikistan as well. I believe that Tavaana's efforts are doing more good for Persian speaking people than anything else currently being offered.
