ISPI Event: Spotlight on Iran

calendarclock - (GMT)

This event has been organised by ISPI in cooperation with RUSI.

Since September, Iran has been increasingly in the spotlight due to the nationwide anti-government protests sparked by Mahsa Amini's death in custody, as well as Tehran’s provision of drones to Russia and the diplomatic stalemate over the nuclear issue.

This event will focus on the perspectives of experts on the ground, who can provide greater context for recent developments and explore Iran’s position from a domestic and international perspective.
