Politics and Social relief in Iran (POLSI)

(IF@COFUND Marie Curie-ULB)

Unité : REPI Recherche et Études en Politique Internationale | ULB704

Description :

In this project, far from considering the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) as an exceptional case that should be mainly analyzed through the lens of Islam or
authoritarianism, I will investigate Iranian politics through the socio-historical analysis of the social relief (SR) sector. Drawing on a sociohistorical
study of SR and on an ethnography of encounters between those who give and those who receive, POLSI aims to chart the Iranian SR sector as well as to
unearth everyday politics in the Iranian context. POLSI shows how, in a global context of neoliberalism and social and financial crisis, it's crucial to
explore politics via the socio-history of the SR sector. Building on a fundamentally interdisciplinary approach of politics it asks: what do the relationships
and conflicts between the multiplicity of actors who intersect in the SR political space say about the transformations of social and political justice issues
in the IRI since 1979?
