About the book: The Islamic Republic of Iran is bound by the customary content of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In Iran’s constitution, however, equal rights apply only to Muslims. Also, the protection by law in the constitution is granted to the citizens of the Islamic Republic exclusively within the framework of the Twelver Shiite interpretation of Islamic law. As a result, there are different rights for different people, depending on gender and religion. How universal human rights are discussed and dealt with in Iran on this basis is the subject of this anthology. [-editor's note, 2021]
