Was the Iranian Revolution of 1979 Inevitable?

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, we invite you to a guest lecture with Professor Touraj Atabaki, Leiden University, followed by a round of Q&A.


The Iranian Revolution in 1979 is a unique event in history in general and the "Revolutionary History" in particular. Iran became, as the Islamic Republic of Iran, the first state and nation in world history to organize itself on a theocratic foundation.
