The Political Potential of Iran's Youth
This research examines the political potential of the children of the Islamic Revolution, Iran's youth. Consisting of those between the ages of fifteen and twenty-nine. this demographic represents 66% of Iran's current population. This large proportion of Iran's population was born after the founding of the Islamic republic of Iran in 1979. Consequently, much of Iran's youth have little connection with the Islamic Revolution, especially when compared to those currently in power in Iran. However, population size and disconnect with the Revolution are not the only factors that contribute to the political potential of Iran's youth. This research hopes to further support the claim that Iran's youth is a demographic of great political potential by thoroughly investigating youth counter-culture, youth discontent, and the impact of modern technologies within Iran. The objective of examining these factors is to provide evidence that much of Iran's youth are in the ideal position to act politically. Thus, by examining these variables, support will be provided to the claim that Iran's youth possess great political potential within Iran.
