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