Constitution as the highest legal and political document in any political community is the regulator of all matters and affairs and specifies moderate relations between authorities. Commitment to the implementation of this important law closes the doors and possibilities of dictatorship and guarantees human dignity and individuals’ sanctity and freedom and facilitates attempting to achieve political and social justice.
Without any doubt the majority of rights and freedoms are not absolute; even there is no relation between fundamentality of rights and its absoluteness. In general view, we can specify that in the constitution of Islamic Republic of Iran, freedom has never become an absolute and non-disciplined issue; but the legislator has decreed some of its restrictions and conditions with respect to the objectives and ideals of humanity and by studying positive and negative achievements of other nations and thereby it has provided necessary internal cohesion and coordination among its components.
This study investigates limitation of individuals’ rights and freedoms and its principles in the constitution of Iran.
