Dignity, Not Domination: The Need to Transform the US’ Relationship with Iran
January 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
The one year anniversary of the US assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani is an opportunity to critically reflect on the US-Iran relationship. The assassination began another year of sanctions and military aggression by Washington and its allies, which were especially devastating to Iran because of the COVID-19 crisis. While the Biden administration has said that it will rejoin the Obama Era Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (also known as the Iran Nuclear Deal), the past decades of US policy toward Iran point to the need for a total transformation of the relationship between the two countries.
Join a discussion with these scholars and analysts on what needs to change in the US-Iran relationship and what US policy rooted in respect of Iranian dignity could look like.
