Iran: The Future of the Opposition and the Islamic Republic

2 February 2010 - 08:00 to 09:15

Chatham House, London


Karim Sadjadpour, Associate, Middle East Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace



The Iranian regime has been unable to extinguish a resilient opposition movement whose political demands have grown more strident with the passage of time. How long can the regime endure in the face of heightened external pressure and a rapidly deteriorating economy? And will the regime's pre-occupation with survival impede or facilitate any moves towards accommodation with the US, the West and its closer neighbours?

This event is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
