Event description

Description

Following the U.S. withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Iran nuclear deal, Washington reimposed sanctions against the Islamic Republic on August 7, with more sanctions coming into force on November 4. Even before the sanctions came into effect, President Donald J. Trump's expressed intention to reimpose sanctions prompted the free fall of the Iranian currency and led to public protests.

How is the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA and the reimposition of U.S. sanctions affecting the Iranian economy, and what is the likely impact on the stability of the regime in Tehran? Will the U.S. decision ultimately lead to the Iranian withdrawal from the JCPOA, or will European powers be able to salvage the deal? What effects will this new dynamic have on the Islamic Republic’s ability to project power abroad, and how will regional powers, especially the Gulf Arab countries, respond?

Please join AGSIW for a discussion around these questions and more.

A light lunch will be served.
