Sahar Yadegari (program manager Adessium) speaks with Peyman Jafari about the political state of affairs in Iran and the taboos addressed in Tehran Taboo.

Peyman Jafari is specialized in Iran and is connected to the University of Amsterdam as a political scientist and historian. Originally from Iran himself, he fled from his home country with his parents in 1987 and has been living in the Netherlands since 1989. Jafari argues that although reform and emancipation is possible in Iran, the government will chose to respond to the recent protests with repression.
