IRAN: What Next for U.S. Policy?
A massive, months-long anti-regime uprising in Iran has revealed deep divisions between the Iranian people and the country’s ruling theocracy. Months of protests directed at Tehran’s malign influence in Iraq have also shaken the Iranian regime to its core. With the IRGC on the run after the targeting of Qassem Soleimani and increased Iranian hostility now directed at U.S. interests, what should U.S. officials do? Join Prof. Ivan Sascha Sheehan, a counter-terrorism scholar and leading authority on U.S. policy toward Iran, for an interactive briefing on major developments in Iran and the Middle East and what’s needed for a more effective U.S. policy. Prof. Sheehan will also discuss the policy implications of his latest book, Iran’s Resurgent Resistance.
