The unprecedented US tour of the former president of the Islamic republic brings with it an opportunity to evaluate the past, present and the future prospects of a regime that is at odds with its own citizenry of 70 million, and is today at the center of an international conflict—stemming from its long record of human rights violations, regional militancy, deceit and pursuit of weapons of mass destruction.

A group of recently escaped Iranian torture victims, former political prisoners and opposition personalities, representing varied political orientations will discuss their individual and collective view points and stories.
