    The Fletcher Seminar on International Conflict

    5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

    President Trump’s recent decision to decertify Iran’s compliance with a landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and the major world powers may well be a harbinger of the agreement’s collapse and a military confrontation with Iran. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the agreement is officially called, successfully blocked all paths to a nuclear weapon by Iran, under the most intrusive inspection procedures, for the next 10 to 15 years. It represented a signal foreign policy achievement of the Obama Administration and included an unusual multinational commitment of support by the U.S.’s European allies (the U.K, France, and Germany), Russia, China, and the UN Security Council. After a brief overview of Iran’s nuclear program, the highlights of the 2015 JCPOA agreement, and the primary concerns of its critics, the talk will focus on the likely reactions by Iran and other signatories of the nuclear deal to a U.S. withdrawal from it and the potential risks of a military confrontation between the U.S. and Iran with dangerous regional consequences.

    CSS Research and Policy Seminar: An Open Session with Paul Stares

Think tanks and policy research institutes play an indispensible role in providing the research on which foreign policy is (or should be) based, and are a top career destination for many of Fletcher’s best.
