The Permanent Crisis: Iran’s Nuclear Trajectory

calendarclock - (GMT)

Jon Snow, David Miliband, Richard Dalton and Shashank Joshi discuss the ways forward for the Iranian nuclear crisis.

Permanent CrisisThe quickening pace of Iran's nuclear activities has produced an international sense of urgency.  Sanctions have intensified, while fears of an Israeli strike abound. Talks have briefly eased the tension, before failing due to fundamental differences between Iran and the West. There seem to be dim prospects for peaceful resolution; the worry is that this long-running dispute could become a permanent crisis.

At this lunchtime event hosted at RUSI, David Miliband, Jon Snow and Richard Dalton will join author of a new paper on the crisis, Shashank Joshi, in conversation about the findings of the paper, and consider what way forward may exist in the ongoing crisis.
