Ahmadinejad’s return may be boost for Rouhani

21 Apr

Rouhani is the anti-Ahmadinejad and vice versa.

Their supporters view the other side with deep suspicion and animosity.

Yet the return of Ahmadinejad to Iranian politics could be good news for Rouhani.

Sounds counter intuitive?

Read below to find out why it could make sense.

#Iran Geopolitics 101

10 Apr

At the beginning of my course, I always start with Iran‘s geopolitics. The first thing my students learn is about Iran‘s geopolitical characteristics, and how geography has had an impact on its history, and its present.

Today I came across this short video report about Iran’s geopolitics.

There are some mistakes regarding the pronunciations and the population of Iranian Azeris (it says there are 25 million, but in reality the number is closer to half of that).

Nevertheless, for a 7 minute video, it does a good job of explaining the important points regarding Iranian geopolitics.
