What can the past tell us about the likely outcome of current bargaining with Iran over its nuclear program? With negotiations ongoing, we spoke with Israeli scholar, Ori Rabinowitz, about the historical context for such dealings.  She provides insights from past nuclear negotiations and how they might inform the current talks. Her book on the subject is titled, “Bargaining on Nuclear Tests: Washington and its Cold War Deals.” That’s the focus of this edition of  Wilson Center NOW. 

Or (Ori) Rabinowitz, an Israeli Chevening Scholar, is a post-doctoral fellow at Tel-Aviv University and a research associate at the Centre for Science and Security Studies, King's College London (KCL). She holds a PhD degree awarded by the War Studies Department of KCL, an MA degree in Security Studies and an LLB degree in Law, both from Tel-Aviv University. Before turning to academia Dr. Rabinowitz has worked as a news desk editor in several Israeli media outlets. Her book, Bargaining on Nuclear Tests was published in April 2014 by Oxford University Press.
