The seminar will examine how the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have constructed a particular history or narrative of the Iran-Iraq War (1980–1988). It will analyze the key features of that narrative and how the Revolutionary Guards have translated those features into lessons that should guide Iran's national security policies.
