Wilson Center, Washington, D.C.
16 January 2018
The International Crisis Group will be partnering with the Wilson Center to host a conference in Washington, D.C., discussing the role of Iran in the Middle East and the challenges the Trump administration policy toward Iran may encounter in 2018.
With the exception of North Korea, there is probably no higher foreign policy priority for the Trump administration in 2018 than dealing with Iran. Recent mass demonstrations in the Islamic Republic, Iran’s emboldened posture in the region, and the fate of the Iran nuclear agreement create uncertainty and raised stakes as the U.S. tries to define its approach toward the country.
Indeed, what is the Trump administration’s policy toward Iran and how is it likely to be implemented in the year ahead? Will 2018 see confrontation, compromise, accommodation or a hybrid?Visit the website of the Wilson Center to learn more and register for this event.INTRODUCTION
