Abstract

What is happening inside Iran? What became of the green movement? While reformists seem removed from the political scene, what do the Iranians want for the future of their country? What have become of the aspirations of thousands of Iranian men and women who revolted against an oppressive regime, only to be bloodily suppressed? Without necessarily questioning the notion of an Islamic republic, they just want to make their country a little more democratic. Have their hopes fizzled out? On this particular journey we have special access to insiders, allowing us to measure how things are bubbling in a country where nearly 70% of the population is under 25, where the youth and their thirst for freedom threaten to boil over.
