Webinar: How to engage Iran: is there a need for a new strategy?

11. Juni 2020, 15:00 - 16:30

Dear colleague,

Dear Madam or Sir,

Following U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal in 2018, Trump’s administration has opted for a maximum pressure campaign against Tehran, while the EU has tried to keep the pieces of the deal together in order to avoid further destabilization in the Gulf region. However, neither U.S. nor EU’s contrasting strategies towards Iran have proved to yield results.

With a more conservative Parliament in Iran following last February’s elections and the next U.S. Presidential election looming, tensions are set to worsen. The EU should use the next months to rework its strategy on how to engage Iran in a way that produces stability in the Gulf region while managing a delicate transatlantic diplomacy.

Ernest Urtasun and myself are delighted to invite you to a virtual discussion on “How to engage Iran: is there a need for a new strategy?”. We will be joined by three leading experts in the field who will provide an analysis from a European, American and Iranian perspective.

After the speakers’ presentation, we will open the floor to questions from the audience. The number of participants is limited, we therefore recommend you to register early. We have experienced that registration with e-mail addresses from certain institutions can be unsuccessful. If you do not receive the access link to the webinar after registration, please register again with a private e-mail address. You can register here.
