Former anti west/shah activist now a Dr in US

Existing research on young people predominantly focuses on two things: young people’s political alienation and their lack of interest in politics (Blais et al., 2004), and the fact that youth has opted for unconventional forms of political activism rather than the more common, electoral type of politics (Norris, 2002). Scholars have paid far less attention to the political attitudes of young people. Some consider the latter as not well equipped to make informed political decisions (Everett, 2013), and we hardly know what young people mean when they make reference to the ‘left’ or the ‘right’ (Mieriņa, 2018).
