The focus of our current project is on Iran and its approach to the human rights. The idea of human rights in the history and culture of Iran is reflected by Cyrus Cylinder, written in 6th century BC. But, a range of several historic circumstances disconnected the Iranian culture in its process to the present from the basic ideas of the human rights. While Iran experienced several political movements in the 1960s and 1970s as in the rights of women, family and in individual and citizen rights, Iranian people are facing to the major lost of those rights since the Islamic Revolution (1979). How compatible is the Iranin culture with the human rights today, and is there any possibility to turn the international view to violation of human rights in Iran? How is it possible to create and established governmental organizations for developing and protection of human rights?
