A Look at the Institutions and Decision Making of the Judiciary in the Islamic Republic of Iran

Asset Abstract: 

This Tavaana-exclusive book is not a detailed historical and comparative research on Iran's judiciary but a descriptive and analytic report on aspects of Iranian judiciary system under the Islamic regime regarding rule of law, the court system, interactions between the Judiciary and other branches of power, and prison systems. Author Majid Mohammadi, sociologist of law, explains the main shortcomings and challenges of this system that is abused by an authoritarian and semi-totalitarian system of government. Based on decisions and policies of judiciary officials, it is fair to say that its main function is to subdue Iranian citizens and consolidate the government's power and violation of human rights is structural and rampant in this criminal justice system.
