November 20, 2009

Reporter Scarlett Heydt of the ASU State Press reported on a Nov. 17 panel discussion at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law about the state of human rights in Iran since the June election was discussed.

In the article, "Panel gives perspective on Iran," Heydt quoted panelist Shahla Talebi, an ASU assistant professor who was in Iran during the 1979 revolution. People there are still silenced, Talebi said. "Every single human rights violation that you can imagine is happening," she said.

The event, presented by the College's Center for Law and Global Affairs, was moderated by Laura Dickinson, Foundation Professor of Law and the Center's Faculty Director. Other panelists were law Professor Orde Kittrie and Renee Redman, Executive Director of the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center.
