Iran: Compliance at the Cost of Nonproliferation?

Mon., May 20, 2013 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm

John F. Kennedy School of Government - Rubenstein Building, Room G20

Iran's failure to comply with its non-proliferation obligations is viewed as one of the most urgent threats to the nuclear non-proliferation regime and international peace and security. Given that diplomacy has thus far not been successful in changing that country's conduct, the only available options for dealing with the problem seem to be increasingly crippling sanctions and, possibly, military strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities. The seminar presentation challenges the above assumptions by drawing attention to the absence of serious diplomatic efforts and lack of understanding of what is at stake for Iran in the dispute.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.

The Iranian Nuclear Dispute as a Challenge for Conflict Resolution

Wed., Oct. 17, 2012 | 10:00am - 11:30am

John F. Kennedy School of Government - Littauer Building, Belfer Center Library, Room L369

The international dispute over Iran’s nuclear program seems to defy any attempts at finding a negotiated solution. This presentation traces the reasons for the failure of diplomacy to broader conflict dynamics which have contributed, not only to Iran’s defiant stance, but also to the shortage of genuine attempts by the international community to pursue the diplomatic option.
