Iran: The Future of the Opposition and the Islamic Republic

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.
