Mapping Civil Resistance in Modern and Contemporary Iran

01 March 2024 - 15:30

Nonviolent civil resistance has occurred in various forms and by different social actors, women, youth or intellectuals, throughout modern and contemporary Iranian history.

However, understanding exactly how this civil resistance has been successful and remained nonviolent is a challenge. This talk by Ramin Jahanbegloo sets out to examine the causes, courses and consequences of nonviolent civil resistance in Iran in the past hundred and thirty years.

Ramin Jahanbegloo is the Executive Director of the Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Nonviolence and Peace Studies and the Vice-Dean of the School of Law at Jindal Global University in India.
