CIGI senior fellow Bessma Momani recently appeared on Global National news to reflect on the state of Iran, 40 years after the Islamic Revolution:

“After 40 years, this Islamic theocracy is not what most Iranians want to live under,” said Momani. “This is a regime in its very last days. I think there’s an enormous amount of frustration. And the hope now is that perhaps, through democratic channels, through civil society activism, eventually the old guards will be sidelined. And there will be a new Iran that is far more liberal and secular.”
