Abstract : This research paper examines how Iran's economic policies, not US-imposed sanctions, have directly led to the decline in the populations economic and social rights. More specifically, it analyzes the transformation of the regimes economic practices through the post-Revolutionary period and the casual effect of these reforms on the populations ability to achieve basic human rights. It then summarizes the economic sanctions imposed against Iran since the Carter administration and highlights the ineffectiveness of the United States application of these sanctions. Finally, this paper addresses concerns expressed by critics of the sanctions through the analysis of first-person testimonials and studies conducted by non-profit human rights organizations.
