The growing body of research on Iranian migration remains limited through the centrality of Southern California and the United States as a context of research and the analytical focus on national contexts. Contributing to research on Iranian diaspora politics, this article proposes an epistemological move toward a comparative examination of interrelations between local embeddedness and transnational agency. Drawing on transnational migration and social movements studies, I illustrate this approach through an historic ethnography of three groups of people who engage in Iranian transnational politics in Hamburg, in Florence and Geneva between 1951 and 2019. Thinking locality comparatively represents an urgent bet towards complicating transnational political positionalities beyond the anti-Iranian regime premise.
