What: “The Future of U.S./Iran Relations”

Who: Reza Aslan, Middle East Commentator for NPR's "Marketplace"; author of No God But God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam; Research Associate, Center on Public Diplomacy, University of Southern California; and, was recently both Visiting Assistant Professor of Islamic and Middle East Studies at the University of Iowa and the Truman Capote Fellow in Fiction at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop

Event: The strategy of the United States over the past two and half decades to sanction, isolate, and contain Iran has only strengthened the hand of the country's clerical regime, accelerated its weapons program, and made the attainment of full democracy there a more distant prospect. It is time for a new approach, one that combines a wide ranging package of economic incentives and security guarantees in exchange for both international monitoring of and international cooperation with Iran's nuclear program. The advantages of such a policy shift is that it would not only curb Iran's nuclear ambitions, it may, by forcing Iran out of its economic isolation, lead to the regime change America has been fruitlessly striving for since the Iranian revolution in 1979.
