The Iran Nuclear Deal: Game Changer?
7 October, 2015
Law Theatre, ANU
International Relations Society
The historic Iran nuclear deal signed by the P5+1 on July 15 is a potential game changer that has evoked a mixed response across the region and around the world.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu derided the deal it as a “bad mistake of historic proportions”, while Saudi Arabia’s King Salman withdrew from a summit hosted by President Obama in protest.
What does the deal mean for US foreign policy, how will it be implemented and, with much of the Middle East mired in conflict, what does the agreement mean for regional political dynamics?
To discuss these issues and more we’ll be joined by:
⌲ John Carlson AM: Former Chairman of the IAEA’s Standing Advisory Group on Safeguards Implementation and Nonresident Fellow at the Lowy Institute
⌲ Professor Amin Saikal AM: Director of the Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies
⌲ Firouzeh Khoshnoudiparast: PhD student focussing on Iranian diplomacy
