We are also thrilled by the very positive response to our free online course on "Transitional Justice". Enrollment is still open, and we welcome everyone's participation. The first week of our course, "A Window to the World of Transitional Justice", has kicked off successfully, shedding light on the intricate facets of transitional justice.
We hosted a thought-provoking seminar, "The Concept of Populism and its Importance", that we hope to continue to spark intellectual discourse and debate. We're also pleased to present the sixteenth episode of the Iran Academia podcast - "Organization and Democracy", featuring an insightful discussion with Saeed Rahnema. Our Podcast's upcoming episode "Moral Politics" (George Lakoff), featuring an engaging conversation with Vafa Mehraein, the translator of G. Lakoff's work, slated for release on July 3rd.
