Domestic Repression in Iran and U.S. National Security Interests: The Case for Integrating Human Rights into U.S. Foreign Policy on Iran

Grant Year: 2021


Hadi Ghaemi and Karen Kramer will explore how the United States could integrate a human rights agenda into U.S. policy toward Iran. They will research Iranian primary sources; conduct interviews and discussions with key members of Iranian civil society; track and analyze the official and semi-official press in Iran, as well as monitor Persian-language social media platforms that reflect societal trends and dynamics in Iran; and engage with U.S. policymakers. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
