Episode 8: Where Are We Now and What Comes Next?

Hosts Darya Dolzikova and Tobias Borck wrap up this season of 'Mind the Gulf' podcasts with a discussion on the current state of the Iran nuclear negotiations and possible future trajectories with guests Dr Naysan Rafati (International Crisis Group) and Dr Cinzia Bianco (European Council on Foreign Relations).

The discussion touches on the dynamics at play in Washington, Tehran and Europe, and on their likely implications for the future of regional security in the Gulf.

Mind the Gulf Podcast Series

Mind the Gulf is part of RUSI’s Iran in the Global Security Context project, which examines linkages between the Iranian nuclear programme and regional security in the Gulf and the wider Middle East. The project and this podcast examine the perspectives of countries in the region, with a particular focus on the six Gulf monarchies and Iran. The aim is to identify key concerns that need to be addressed if the diplomacy on Iran’s nuclear programme is to be rendered resilient within the regional security context.
