As international negotiations continue over Iran’s nuclear program, hope remains for an alternative to the unappetizing choice between an incipient Iranian nuclear capability and a war against Iran. How might internal political developments in Iran affect Tehran’s negotiating posture? What impact will additional unilateral American sanctions, currently under discussion in Congress, have on the multilateral efforts and on Iran’s calculus? Please join us for a discussion of these issues and Washington’s policy options should negotiations fail.
