Abstract

This article discusses the possible future of the relation between the reformist faction of the Islamic regime and the growing secular protest movement in Iran. Will the liberal Present will able to satisfy and contain the increasingly vocal protests and demands of workers, students, women and others against the Islamic system? Or will, for the first time in the recent history of the Middle East, an independent movement from below emerge, challenging the very existence of Islamism in Iran.
