Nuclear Meltdown: Rebuilding a Coherent Policy Towards Iran

A book discussion with Barbara Slavin and Trita Parsi

In a timely discussion on U.S. – Iranian relations, the Center for American Progress will host two of the foremost authorities on the subject, Barbara Slavin and Trita Parsi. They have both recently authored books outlining the mercurial relationship between the United States and Iran and the influences of outside actors, including Israel. Both authors had unprecedented access to administration officials in both countries and provide keen insight into a very complicated situation.

Please join us for a lively and stimulating discussion with Barbara Slavin and Trita Parsi, as they draw on their research to illuminate post-NIE policy directions. The discussion will be moderated by Joseph Cirincione, Senior Fellow and Director for Nuclear Policy at the Center for American Progress.
