Reza Parchizadeh, a political theorist and analyst, has written an article for The Algemeiner regarding measures by Iran to vet university candidates. He explains that in another attempt to oppress the intellectuals in Iran, the regime will vet master’s and doctoral candidates to make sure that they have a genuine “commitment” to the ideological values of the Islamist regime.
If the candidate fails the vetting process, regardless of their scholarly or research skills and background, they will be barred from continuing their higher education.
