Imam Shirazi Center Discusses Cultural-Social Developments in Iraq

Imam Shirazi Center, headquartered in holy Karbala, specified its latest round of conferences to discuss the cultural, social and political developments in Iraq. The conference hosted some legal experts and academics, as well as Haidar Jarrah, the head of Imam Shirazi Center, who began this conference, saying: To witness effective democratic reforms in the country, we need to empower the cultural will in our society. On the other hand, the lack of attention to the cultural issues, will certainly result in a setback in the democratic process in our country. In the 80s, Henri Mendras, a French sociologist did an interesting research on this topic. In this research, Mr. Mendris discusses the correlation between values, family and social misconducts and their impacts on democratic change.”
