Abstract
The purpose of this research is to investigate existing perceptions upon the sanctions relief amongst middle class Iranian youths between the ages of 25 to 30, living in Karaj and Tehran.

The primary data were analysed through a conventional content analysis and afterwards discussed in relation to previously published literature, including the life course perspective, which predominantly justified the key finding. The primary data showed that six of ten youths had positive viewpoints on the sanctions relief and embraced the implemented deal. Two of ten youths were more critical and additional two youths had ambivalent perceptions on the sanction relief. Iranian youths’ perceptions can thereby be concluded as diverse where a majority viewed the sanction relief as a positive change and a small minority that either had negative or ambivalent outlooks. The primary data also demonstrated that nine of the ten youths were financially unaffected and only one youth had experienced a financial gain by the sanctions relief in the post sanctions era.
