Iranian students have been seen as one of the country’s most influential social groups, alongside clerics and workers, and they have consistently challenged state authorities since the establishment of modern universities in 1934 (Parsa 2000). Some even believe that “the modern history of social movements in Iran is unimaginable without the student movement” (Sreberny and Gholam 2007, p. 284).
