Tehran

I. Why it Matters

Iran is at a critical moment in its post-revolutionary history. As Ayatollah Khamenei’s succession looms, internal tensions are rising over the Islamic Republic’s fate with its unique combination of republican and theocratic features. Iran’s regional position has been ascendant since 2003, and even more so since 2011, with a string of successes for its allies and proxies. But what Tehran views as safeguarding its strategic depth, the U.S. and its allies see as evidence of a malign Iranian ambition for regional dominance. A cycle pitting U.S. “maximum pressure” against Iranian “maximum resistance” has put the two sides on the brink of military confrontation, raised regional tensions and put the nuclear deal on a path to unravelling.
