Unrest in Iran. Why it’s not a Revolution

“Despite people’s passion and energy, no one knows what is happening in Iran. Analysts are confused and mostly silent. And the people on the streets are not supporting any individual or group…” – Maziar Bahari, filmmaker, journalist, editor of IranWire.

A political prisoner under the Iranian government from June to October 2009, Bahari’s personal story along with his professional experience offers a unique overview of the inner workings and unprecedented insight into the zeitgeist of modern Iran. His recent Washington Post piece, “A second revolution in Iran? Not yet” is a sweeping analysis of the demonstrations.

Iranian-American policy analyst Karim Sadjadpour attributes these recent demonstrations to a young Iranian society seeking a more liberal progressive nation. “They’re leaderless. They’re unorganized. They’re unarmed,” says Sadjadpour.

A Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and regular contributor to The Atlantic, Karim Sadjadpour is widely considered one of the leading authorities on Iran and the Middle East, as seen in his recent article “The Battle for Iran” and his analysis on PBS Newshour.
