November 16, 2015

Jackson School Director Reşat Kasaba will speak on a panel at Town Hall Seattle on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. with Joe Cirincione and Trita Parsi on “Policy and Politics of the Iran Nuclear Agreement.”

The recent nuclear agreement with Iran marks a historic moment in nuclear nonproliferation and a significant shift in US foreign policy. Will this deal put a stop to an Iranian bomb? How was the political fight in Congress won? What does it mean for broader regional issues in the Middle East? Joe Cirincione, longtime nuclear policy expert, and Trita Parsi, US-Iranian relations expert, were key players in the successful fight for this agreement. Together, with renowned Middle East expert Reşat Kasaba, they will provide an inside perspective on the political and policy challenges they faced, and what we can expect moving forward.
