Iran's last presidential election in 2009 resulted in widespreadaccusations of vote rigging and unforeseen protests that shook the Islamic Republic to its core. On June 14, 2013, Iran will hold its eleventh presidential election to replace the outgoing president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The question on everyone's mind is whether these elections matter anymore and if so, what they mean for the future of Iran, both domestically and internationally. Please join us for an in-depth panel discussion on the state of Iranian politics and impact of the upcoming presidential election.
