Putting Protest in Perspective:The Future of the Iranian Regime and U.S.-Iran Relations

Zoom Webinar

Monday, November 14, 2022 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET


Iran is witnessing a new tide of revolution catalyzed by the tragic death of Mahsa Amini, with women taking to the streets to protest the human rights violations they experience under the Islamic Republic of Iran’s multi-decade rule. What started as a movement for women’s autonomy soon stirred a revolution of both women and men against despotism, misogyny, and a tattered economy. In response, some people in Iran are calling for a future without theocracy. In the wake of uncertainty, instability, and optimism, and with no clear succession plan for aging Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, how are the discontent and ensuing violent crackdown impacting the regime’s longevity? How are Iran’s regional allies and adversaries calculating their own strategies vis a vis the Islamic Republic’s latest struggles? And how can Washington best achieve its own human rights and nuclear nonproliferation objectives in the current environment? Join our discussion with Dr. Abbas Milani, Director of the Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies, an Adjunct Professor, and co-director of the Iran Democracy Project at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University on Monday, November 14th, 2022 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET to discuss these questions and more.
