democracy in Iran

Take a look at democracy in Iran in an essay of roughly 750 words. This essay you’re required to do outside research. Iran is paradoxical in a way: there is an unelected supreme leader and fiercely contested elections for the legislative and executive bodies. While the unelected leader, the Ayatollah taken from the clergy, has intense power, the elected government is no figurehead. I want you to address the importance of this Iranian moment in terms of: Islamic democracies across the world, the relationship between clergy and politicians in Islam, and anything else you see as relevant. This is a highly complex topic, so do your best and pick a focused topic. Don’t try to address everything – address one or two things well.
