Podcast 41: An Interview with Hamid Dabashi
In this week’s Weekly Rights Podcast, we explore the topic of U.S. military intervention in Iran. We discuss the recent IAEA report and the increased talk amongst senior U.S. officials about bombing Iran. We talk to Columbia University Professor Hamid Dabashi about the effect of military action on the situation of human rights in Iran. Dabashi explains why the threat of a military intervention is dangerous for Iran and harmful for human rights defenders.
