New York University’s DC Academic Center will host “The Islamic Republic of Iran: Peacemaker or Revolutionary?”—a panel discussion featuring experts from the diplomatic, academic, and advocacy worlds—on Thurs., March 12, 7 p.m. at 1307 L Street, NW (between 13th and 14th Streets).
Iran’s growing nuclear program and support for terror have caused it to be the subject of international sanctions, yet it also remains an indispensable party to any comprehensive and durable peace in the region. Are we engaged in a fools’ errand, or does this attempt at détente offer the reasonable prospect of a more peaceful world? What are the real intentions of the Supreme Leader and government of President Hassan Rouhani? Are the expectations of the United States compatible with the ideology of the Islamic Revolution?
Panel experts include: Amb. Lincoln Bloomfield, Jr., chairman of the Stimpson Center; Andrew Bowen, senior fellow and director of Middle East Studies at the Center for the National Interest’ Blaise Misztal, director of the Foreign Policy Project at the Bipartisan Policy Center; Manal Omar, acting vice president for the Middle East and Africa Center for the United States Institute of Peace; and Ali Safavi, member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The discussion will be moderated by Audra Grant, a professor at NYU DC and a former intelligence analyst at the U.S. State Department,
Reporters wishing to attend must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
