The CMES Director's Series presents
Professor Emeritus, director, l’Institut d’études iraniennes, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris
Iranian sources do not come readily available when a major political change brings about a return to authoritarian rule, as was the case in February 1921 or August 1953. The nationalistic discourse provides misleading answers by blaming foreign interference. A close analysis dismantles conspiracy theories. Where is the truth? This talk will present newly published documents to reflect on these issues.
