Speaker(s): Hooman Majd
Chair: Dr Katerina Dalacoura
Recorded on 14 September 2009 at Old Theatre, Old Building
A brief summary of how Iran's political system works, examples of what is most misunderstood about Iran, its leadership and the events leading up to the election (describing some of Hooman's own experiences since he was there). Majd will explain why the election and its aftermath may actually be the best thing to happen to Iran in a very long time, and why the vision of an "Islamic Democracy" which some Iranian leaders have, may come about sooner now than if there had been no crisis at all
