This paper begins by examining the recent political history of Iran towards democracy. It then looks at the parties involved in the current political sphere and focuses on the opposition parties that are against the move towards democracy. It explains that there are still other reactionary forces that also play a role in the political arena and looks at ways that the society is being encouraged to embrace democracy.

From the Paper:

"The nation has a long history of not being a democracy, however, from ancient times, through the Shah who was deposed in the late 1970s, to the present time. Huntington points out, however, that whether democratization is ultimately successful depends on a number of factors, including the type and strength of the authoritarian regime in line for change, the willingness of that regime to entertain the possibility of democratization, and how strong the movement toward democratization is. The conditions in the country "poverty and so on" also play a role."
