Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


It seems that, the degree of adaptation and implementation of human rights values has turned to be the corner stone for evaluation of state in a globalizing world. Although in every corner of the world raise the voices of individuals and minorities in glorification of the human rights, but still exist some regimes that resist accepting these global standards of human rights. We are concern to see how the IRI –as a theocratic regime with the pervasive human rights- is challenged in adapting and implementing these values. It is a complicated case, because the regime receives its legitimacy from practice of Islamic rules and values. Acceptance of the human rights as a secular product of human being is in sharp contrast with celestial law of Islam. Moreover, adaptation of these rights might jeopardize the regime’s internal legitimacy, and ignoring the rights also costs the regime decline of international respect. Hence, the project aims to investigate the challenges of the IRI in adapting and implementing these values.
