Watch a live webcast on the prospects for liberal democracy in Iran with Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi.

The Islamic Republic of Iran faces increasing, multifaceted crises in its legitimacy, popularity, and functionality. But in the absence of a powerful, organized opposition, the regime still seems quite self-confident.

To discuss the government’s future, the opposition’s ability to capitalize on widespread disenchantment about Islamist ideology, and the prospects for liberal democracy down the road, The Washington Institute is pleased to host a Policy Forum with Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Muhammad Reza Shah Pahlavi. Institute scholar Mehdi Khalaji will moderate the discussion. Watch a live webcast of this event starting at 12:30 p.m. EST on Friday, December 14, 2018.
