The Internet, Human Rights, and Civil Resistance in Iran

The Internet, Human Rights, and Civil Resistance in Iran

Introduction

The Internet, human rights, and civil resistance are three important subjects in Iranian society. In recent years, the Iranian political-civil rights movement has used the Internet as an important tool for free access and exchange of information, breaking the government monopoly on news media, expanding social networks, and capacity building and empowerment for both citizens and activists. Likewise, in the last few years, political-civil activists have used the Internet to attempt awareness-building campaigns, news services, and mobilizing and organizing communities.

Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik lädt Sie ein am

Mittwoch, den 26. Oktober 2011, 13.00 bis 14.30 Uhr

zu einem Expertengespräch

S.E. Dr. Mohammad Reza Farzin

Vice Minister at Ministry of Economic and Finance,
Islamic Republic of Iran

spricht zum Thema:

Double track diplomacy and its consequences

Einführung und Kommentar:

Dr. Rainer Stinner, MdB

Außenpolitischer Sprecher,
FDP-Bundestagsfraktion, Deutscher Bundestag

Die Beziehungen zwischen dem Iran und den westlichen Staaten sind auf einem
Tiefpunkt. Während die USA und die EU im Iran auf vielen Feldern einen Gegner
sehen und mit Sanktionen und Isolationspolitik reagieren, liegt die Zusammenarbeit in
anderen Bereichen natürlich brach.
Vor allem für die Bewältigung der Probleme in Afghanistan könnte der Iran aber ein
wichtiger Partner sein, konkret bei der Bekämpfung des Drogenhandels. Die
Energiekooperation wäre ein weiteres Beispiel möglicher Gemeinsamkeiten. Wo
liegen Bereiche, in denen die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Iran vorsichtig ausgebaut
werden kann, ohne die Konflikte aus den Augen zu verlieren? Ist eine Diplomatie aus
Kooperation und Konfrontation denkbar?

Die Moderation übernimmt Prof. Dr. Eberhard Sandschneider, Otto Wolff-Direktor
des Forschungsinstituts, DGAP

Vor dem Gespräch (12.30 – 13.00 Uhr) wird es einen kleinen Imbiss geben.
Diese Veranstaltung findet im Hause der DGAP, Rauchstr. 17, 10787 Berlin, statt.

Bitte teilen Sie uns per Fax oder E-Mail (030/25 42 31-91, hausotte@dgap.org) mit, ob
Sie an der Veranstaltung teilnehmen werden.

Wir würden uns sehr freuen, Sie begrüßen zu dürfen.

Geschäftsführender stellv. Präsident

Hiermit bestätige ich meine Teilnahme am Expertengespräch mit S.E. Dr. Mohammad
Reza Farzin am 26.10.2011 in der DGAP

PRESS RELEASE Report exposes Iran’s media campaign to demonize Bahá’ís

NEW YORK — In a wide-ranging media campaign that has gone largely unnoticed outside of Iran, hatred and discrimination are being systematically stirred up against the country’s 300,000-member Baha’i minority.

In a report released today, the Baha’i International Community documents and analyzes more than 400 press and media items over a 16-month period, that typify an insidious state-sponsored effort to demonize and vilify Baha’is, using false accusations, inflammatory terminology, and repugnant imagery.

 

The report – titled „Inciting Hatred: Iran’s Media Campaign to Demonize Baha’is“ – documents and analyzes more than 400 press and media items between late 2009 and early 2011, which clearly expose Iran’s state-sponsored effort to vilify its largest non-Muslim religious minority.

„This anti-Baha’i propaganda is shocking in its volume and vehemence, its scope and sophistication,“ said Bani Dugal, Principal Representative of the Baha’i International Community to the United Nations. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Baha’is accuse Iran of stoking hatred in media

CNN

By Joe Sterling
Oct. 22, 2011

Iranian media outlets have “systematically stirred up” widespread contempt toward the country’s 300,000-strong Baha’i religious minority, the group says.

The Baha’i International Community issued a report Friday entitled “Inciting Hatred: Iran’s media campaign to demonize Baha’is.”

The report “documents and analyzes more than 400 media items over a 16-month period.” The result, the Baha’is say, is an “insidious state-sponsored effort” to discredit the Baha’is with “false accusations, inflammatory terminology, and repugnant imagery.” Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags
