1. Kunkler, Mirjam. "Special Law for Not-So-Special Cases: The Special Court for the Clergy in Iran" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, Sheraton Boston Hotel, Boston, MA, May 30, 2013 <Not Available>. 2019-08-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p644812_index.html>

Abstract: The paper reviews the Special Court for the Clergy (dādgāh-ye vizheh-ye ruhāniyat) of the Islamic Republic of Iran, a powerful and elaborate legal institution which due to its difficult accessibility has received only scant academic attention thus far. The official function of the court is to investigate criminal transgressions of the Shiite clergy, but since the mid-1990s the court has increasingly become an instrument against those opposing Supreme Leader Khamenei’s claims to the marja‘iyat (i.e. being a source of emulation, the highest level of religious authority in Twelver Shiism). As such, the court’s jurisdiction has been expanded beyond members of the clergy and now also frequently tries journalists and public intellectuals. The Special Court is not part of the Judiciary and therefore not subject to oversight by the Head of Judiciary, nor to the administrative regulations, and finances of the judiciary. Its personnel, operating funds, and rules of procedure are decided in the Supreme Leader’s Office. Court proceedings take place behind closed doors and the accused are not permitted to choose their own defense counsel. Appeals cannot be reviewed by the country’s Supreme Court, but only by a panel internal to the Special Court. Proceedings of the court are not officially accessible to judges of other courts, nor employees of any other governmental agency. Given the Islamic Republic of Iran’s emphasis on law and legalism, the Special Court of the Clergy imparts a revealing glimpse at the multifaceted way the Islamic Republic makes use of the law in order to hold internal challenges at bay. Only once was the internal opposition successful in beginning to devise a process of institutional reform that would have integrated the special courts into the regular court system. This was under the presidency of Mohammad Khatami (1997-2005). However, the reform initiative was eventually stalled at the resistance of the Minister of the Intelligence, who is appointed by the Supreme Leader. As such, the institutional evolution of the court and who in which governmental position defends its continued existence also gives insights into government-opposition relations at any given point. The paper is based on court proceedings where published, defense documentation, court memoirs, newspaper reports, and the Supreme Leader’s decrees and regulations.

Abstract: This qualitative research concentrates on the Lived Experiences of Special Children Educators and the co-researchers’ different reasons why they are teaching Special Education (SPED), different teaching techniques they employ, struggles faced in teaching, and motivation to continue teaching SPED were also explored to fully gain an in-depth understanding of their lived experiences.
Semi-structured interviews were carried with three special education teachers who have been teaching SPED for a minimum of 11 months, but have had experiences also dealing with SPED students through their on-the-job trainings.
The analysis produced four master themes. These are: “Reasons for Teaching SPED” which discusses the factors that made them teach in a Special Education program; “Techniques in Teaching SPED” that talks about the strategies they employ to manage the students; “Struggles in Teaching SPED” which discusses the hardships of the teachers; and “Motivations in Teaching SPED” that talks about their inspirations to pursue teaching SPED.

Abstract: Homeless youth with learning disabilities feel that once they are identified as special education students they are placed on pathways that lead nowhere. Consequently they try any means possible to lose this identity instead of learning how to build on their strengths, advocate, and seek accommodations in learning environments. What is even more challenging is when their own children exhibit similar characteristics. In their attempts to make meaning of the situation they now find their child in, using the lens of their own past experiences, they once again default to denial and other negative coping behaviors.

This presentation will focus on a narrative study of homeless youth who were formerly in special education, and at the time of the study, clients of a drop-in center in downtown Toronto, Canada. Through multiple interviews they generated their narratives of involvement in special education.
