The emotional and psychological impact on children of the political crisis in Iran is an important and neglected issue, say S Deghati & Linda Herrera.Iran’s months of street-demonstrations that erupted after the disputed presidential election of 12 June 2009 have hit the country’s young people - including children - especially hard. The effects are various, damaging, and in many cases. It is a phenomenon that deserves to be considered as a distinct part of the kaleidoscope of Iran’s collective social experience in these dramatic months.
