How do you evaluate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s first year in office? In 2013, more than 18 million Iranians voted Rouhani into the presidency on promises of better relations with the West, improving the country’s economy and more freedom at home. While progress has been made in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear energy programme and the economy, can Rouhani deliver change when it comes to personal freedom in Iran? Join the conversation at 1930GMT.
