March 3: Iran—Negotiation or Confrontation?

Mohammad Ayatollahi Tabaar will examine the dynamics of U.S.-Iranian relations and how the two countries went from a historic nuclear deal to the brink of war. Points of contention, among others, have included Iran’s nuclear program and expanding influence in the Middle East. He will discuss increasing tensions in the context of Iran’s upcoming 2021 presidential election, Tehran’s increasing ties with Moscow and Beijing, and their implications for the U.S. What are the possibilities for a new round of nuclear negotiations or confrontation between Washington and Tehran?

Mohammad Ayatollahi Tabaar is a fellow for the Middle East at Rice University’s Baker Institute and an associate professor in the department of international affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
