Overview

The nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 offers risks and opportunities to Iran itself and to its global and regional relations. While states such as Saudi Arabia and Israel argue that a deal will lead not only to nuclear proliferation but also to further Iranian influence, others argue that it could provide new economic opportunities and an improvement to international relations across the region.

This roundtable meeting will examine the national, regional and global implications of a deal, as well as address the impact of a deal/no deal on the emerging regional order.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
