ABSTRACT
There is a consensus about the severe impact of the economic sanctions on the Iranian economy and the limits of its achievement to compel Iran to stop its uranium enrichment activities. However, the probability of the emergence of revolutionary uprisings against the regime due to the sanctions is still a debatable issue. Therefore, this article seeks to understand the probability of transforming economic demands of Iranians to political demands as a result of the economic sanctions. In that respect, it attempts to answer the following question: Would economic sanctions be successful to dissuade the Iranian regime from its nuclear program as a result of widespread discontent among Iranians in an era when the Middle Eastern and North African regimes have been challenged by the popular uprisings? It seems that the main aim of greater economic sanctions is to slow Iranian nuclear program, rather than to end it. Therefore, this article argues that the possibility of transformation of economic demands of Iranians to political demands is low, since most of the Iranians now only criticize the economy policies, not the nuclear policies, of the government.
