Imam Khomeini, A Different Charismatic Leader

As Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran says, “Without name of Khomeini this [Islamic] Revolution nowhere is known.

Sanctions andCovid-19

In the current global pandemic, Iran occupies a unique position. One of the first countries to experience the outbreak of covid-19, it is simultaneously the target of an economic blockade that goes back not years, but decades. How Iran has fared under this dual onslaught is determined by the interaction between its singular place in the geopolitical order and the distinctive character of its own institutions.
