Survey into Baha’i experience in Iran seeking respondents

John Cappucci, Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict at Assumption University, is conducting a study into how Iranian Canadians perceive the treatment of adherents of the Baha’i faith in Iran.

To that end, he is seeking respondents to an anonymous online survey which should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

All individuals who:

  • are at least 18 years of age,
  • were born in Iran or have at least one parent from Iran,
  • reside in the province of Ontario or have at least once residence here, and
  • have a basic familiarity with the treatment of the Baha’i in Iran,

are invited to take part. Participants who complete the survey may enter into a draw to win one of 20 e-gifts valued at $20 each.

Dr. Cappucci’s project, entitled “A Minority Affair: the Baha’i Question and Iranian Canadians,” has received clearance from the UWindsor Research Ethics Board.
