The Current Status of Human Rights and Religious Freedom in Iran
Over the past decade, the United States foreign policy toward Iran has focused primarily on deterring Iran’s ambitions of securing nuclear weapons. However, in the wake of last year’s presidential elections Iranian citizens took to the streets to demonstrate their displeasure with the current regime. Following these protests, a wide array of human rights abuses perpetrated by the regime and its supporters were brought to the forefront.
