Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH Ever wonder why UN human rights resolutions on Iran are important? In this week’s Weekly Rights Podcast, we talk to Dokhi Fassihian of United 4 Iran, a global network of human rights activists. Ms. Fassihian talks about the recent resolution passed by the UN on the situation of human rights in Iran. She tells us that this year’s resolution is significant because of the increasing international support and the newly-appointed Special Rapporteur on human rights in Iran, and she discusses the Iranian government’s lack of cooperation with UN human rights mandates. Enjoy this stimulating discussion on the relationship between Iran and the UN!
