Great Decisions: Iran at a Crossroads

Great Decisions: Iran at a Crossroads

What is the future for relations between Iran and the U.S.? By the fall of 2022, Iran was in a state of turmoil due to widespread protests against government-enforced wearing of the hijab, a failing economy, an ineffective new president, and the looming succession of the country’s leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. Abroad, renewal of the Iran nuclear deal seemed doubtful and tensions remain high between Iran, Israel, and Arab states. Many Iranians have lost hope of a better future, and the country seems at a crossroads. How should the United States deal with it?

Join us for a discussion of the article "Iran at a Crossroads" by Lawrence G. Potter, which you'll find attached. We will be joined by Blaise Misztal, the Vice President for Policy at JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security of America.) His research specializations include Iran and its nuclear program, U.S.-Turkey relations, countering extremism, and strategic competition.

A short film on the topic produced by the Foreign Policy Association will be shown at 1:00, followed by the discussion at 1:30.
