The recent elections in Iran, and subsequent challenges to their legitimacy, have been a matter of enormous internal conflict in Iran, and of seemingly endless debate in the rest of the world. As protesters continue to take to the Iranian street to voice their opposition to the elections, fault-lines are emerging amongst the ruling elite.  These momentous events constitute a significant challenge to the legitimacy of the Iranian regime and the future of the Islamic Republic.  This conference provides an opportunity to have leading Iranian scholars and analysts discuss the impact of the recent elections, Iran's relationship with the international community and the theocratic foundations of the Islamic Republic.

Ervand Abrahamian, Asef Bayat, Hamid Dabashi, Shahla Talebi
Gary Sick, Judith Yaphe, Farideh Farhi
