Violence [January 2014]


This edition addresses the critical issue of violence in Iran and how it is used at all levels of society, from the actions of national government to domestic life, to reinforce the values of the Islamic Republic and prevent challenges to the status quo. The Iran Human Rights Review: Violence tackles a number of important issues including the role of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and the Baseej, the use of the death penalty in spreading fear, the treatment of prisoners and systemic discrimination against women, ethnic and religious minorities in Iran.
