Strategic Options for Iran: Balancing Pressure with Diplomacy

Strategic Options for Iran: Balancing Pressure with Diplomacy by iranproject

This event is held in colloboration with The Iran Project.

Former senior national security officials, military officers and experts with decades of Middle East experience have joined to present a balanced report on the strategic options for dealing with Iran.  Moving the debate past politics and unexamined assumptions they argue that the time has come for Washington to strengthen the diplomatic track in the two track policy of pressure and diplomacy that has characterized current U.S. policy.

In suggesting a need to strengthen diplomacy they examine four central questions:

  1. What have been the successes, shortfalls and risks of the predominantly pressure strategy on Iran?
  2. What might be the impact on other US interests in the Middle East if a negotiated nuclear agreement with Iran is reached? 
  3. How might the Administration strengthen the diplomatic track?
  4. And the overall costs and benefits of US engagement with Iran.
