This episode examines the ongoing international negotiations over Iran’s nuclear programme, the implications of a potential nuclear agreement for security in the Middle East and Iran’s regional policies, and the likely future Middle East role of the US and European powers.
Dr Tobias Borck, Research Fellow for Middle East Security Studies, and Darya Dolzikova, Research Fellow in the Proliferation and Nuclear Policy programme, discuss with Dr Neil Melvin, Director, RUSI International Security Studies, the efforts to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to regulate Tehran’s nuclear programme. The relationship between Iran’s nuclear activities and its regional security engagements is examined, and possibilities for future regional engagement by the US and European states are considered.
