The View from Tehran: Iran’s External Priorities and Internal Challenges

16 March 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Chatham House, London


Nasser Hadian, Professor of Political Sciences, Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, University of Tehran
Chair: Sanam Vakil, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House



Since the beginning of 2018, Tehran has been beset with mounting internal and external pressure. The Rouhani government is struggling to address economic, financial, environmental and social grievances expressed in the two weeks of popular unrest in January. The Iranian government must also contend with continued uncertainty regarding the future of the nuclear agreement (JCPOA). Moreover, Iran’s role in the wider Middle East remains contested and controversial. At this event, Professor Nasser Hadian will discuss Tehran’s perception of these interconnected challenges.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
