Populism 16 April 2024

Seminar Summary

If the “populist moment” is when “the hegemony that dominates the society becomes unstable with the rise of various unfulfilled demands of the people”, the question is whether Iran is experiencing a “populist moment” today?

In Iran’s status quo, have the “populist” movements got more chance to emerge and grow? If so, what are the characteristics of populist movements and their main elements? What is the danger of these movements gaining strength?

Among the various forms of populism (religious, nationalist and left), which one has a better chance of gaining power in the current situation of Iran’s society? And is there a way to deal with the danger of a populist movement gaining power?

These are the questions that are discussed in the conversation between three social science researchers.

The purpose of this conversation is to reflect on the conditions that have emerged in Iran’s socio-political atmosphere after the Mahsa Amini movement.

About this series

How can multiple knowledges, lived experiences, marginal, cross-border, and bottom-up actions be discussed? Through what window will the history of voices, actions, reminders, resistances and repressions become more visible?

This revolution-in-the-making teaches us that the production of local knowledge (center-escape), the lived experience of marginalized subjects and the political-feminist activism of people and populations under constant government repression and pressure should be at the center of these conversations in this series of conversations. We will discuss various topics such as racism, populism, litigation and feminist politics, and we will redraw the multiple horizons of resistance subjects, and we will recognize movement, lived, and research knowledge beyond the imposed borders and subjects of domination.
