With sectarian rhetoric that continues to divide the region, proxy wars between Iran and Saudi Arabia intensifying, and the uncertain effects of the nuclear deal on U.S.-Iranian relations one year after its implementation, it is clear that American foreign policy in the Middle East has to adjust to the new realities on the ground in Iran and Saudi Arabia.


The program features Richard Nephew, former director for Iran at the National Security Council (NSC), now at the Brookings Institution. He is also a noted sanctions expert. Also on the panel is Sebastian Maisel, Associate Professor of Arabic and Middle East Studies at GVSU. Chad Lingwood, Associate Professor of History at GVSU, moderates.


Presented by the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan in partnership with the Iran Project and the World Affairs Councils of America.

Public invited.  Free parking.  No RSVP needed.  Pay at door.  $10 for members, $15 for non-members.  Non-members can sign up for free e-mail membership at event and receive member pricing.
