$7 - $20


Given President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, the $110 billion arms deal and his call for a review of the Iranian nuclear deal, there is a notable shift in US policy toward the region that departs from the previous administration. Join us as we hear from a distinguished panel discuss the US-Iran-Saudi Arabia nexus and whether the US is destined for renewed diplomacy or conflict in the Middle East.

Speakers include:

Seyed Hossein Mousavian, Middle East security and nuclear policy specialist, program on science and global security, Princeton University

Banafsheh Keynoush, foreign affairs scholar and author of "Saudi Arabia and Iran: Friends or Foes?"

Fred H. Lawson, senior fellow, Centre for Syrian Studies, University of St. Andrews

The panel discussion will be moderated by Jessica Tuchman Mathews, distinguished fellow, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
