Amnesty International report on Iran: Student and Academic Repression

On Monday, Amnesty International released a report on Iran’s extensive efforts to prevent the emergence of critical voices in its university system.

The report is titled Silenced, Expelled, Imprisoned: Repression of students and academics in Iran, and it touches upon a wide variety of issues, including the fact that women and religious or ethnic minorities are often barred from attending, the fact that government exerts control over classroom content and the types of programs offered, the trend of “Islamicization” to weed out Western influences, and the arrest and imprisonment of students and student activists.
