Authority, Protest, and Rights Talk in Postrepublican Iran
This chapter connects the current calls for rights with the often neglected aspects of the Iranian government's “republic,” noting that Imam Khomeini's vision of a so-called pure Islamic government has been dominated by the compromise formation of an Islamic Republic. The assemblage of select readings and sources of Shi'i Islamic jurisprudence to form a juridico-legal authority was one of the most important influences of the state formation of Islamic Republic, which continued to form after thirty years. The productive effects of the Islamic Republic disputed the paths of thinking about the state. It is observed that women are at the forefront of reform. Criticisms of rights discourses have been issued at the forefront of the threat that has now been revised from imperialism to “regime change” or “velvet revolution.”
