Presented by BU Law's Student Affairs & the National Security Law Society
October 21, 2009
Panel of experts on Iran:
- Dr. Kamran Dadkhah, Associate Professor of Economics, Northeastern University
- Dr. Fatemeh Haghighatjoo, former member of Iran's reform Parliament
- Representative Denise Provost ('82), State Rep. for the 27th Middlesex District of Massachusetts

With President Obama's overture to Iran, the crisis following the June 2009 Iranian Presidential election, President Ahmadinejad's recent visit to the UN General Assembly, and calls for further economic sanctions on Iran both on State and national levels, what does the future of US/Iran negotiations look like? Is engagement with Iran, given the post-election turmoil, an option? How does the fate of US/Iran relationship affect Iraq and Afghanistan? Does or should the latest Iranian nuclear revelation change the game in any way?
