G r e s h The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University A b s t r a c t Since 2003 and the establishment of Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government, Iran has witnessed a rise in ethnonationalist activity among its Kurdish population. Much of the motivation for this activity stems from the political success of the Kurds in Iraq. The spread of Iranian Kurdish nationalism has also been influenced by globalisation forces, such as global communications technologies, transnational networks, and increased mobility across borders. In this age of globalisation, the Iranian govern- ment’s ability to rule over the Kurds will continue to erode, unless it caters toward Kurdish demands of minority rights.
