Event description
Can the Iran Deal be re-negotiated? What are the implications for Australia?

About this Event

The Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran Deal, was widely criticised by many US allies, including Australia. But recent comments from the presidents of Iran and the United States indicate that there may now be an opportunity for negotiations between the two governments. Can the Iran Deal be re-negotiated? How would a Trump administration-negotiated Iran Deal differ from the Obama administration’s? What are the implications for Australia?

Please join us for a conversation with Behnam Ben Taleblu, a senior fellow in the Washington-based Foundation for Defence of Democracy, to discuss these issues at a roundtable on Monday, 16 September, from 12-1:30 pm at the United States Studies Centre.

Behnam Ben Taleblu is a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defence of Democracy (FDD) in Washington where he focuses on Iranian security and political issues. Behnam previously served as a research fellow and senior Iran analyst at FDD. Prior to his time at FDD, Behnam worked on non-proliferation issues at an arms control think-tank in Washington. Behnam is frequently called upon to brief congressional staff and other Washington-audiences, on a wide range of topics, including nuclear non-proliferation, ballistic missiles, sanctions, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the foreign and security policy of the Islamic Republic, and internal Iranian politics. He has also testified before the US Congress and Canadian Parliament.
