As the future of the Iran nuclear agreement remains uncertain following U.S. President Donald Trump’s vow to decertify the deal, experts at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) are available to discuss the implications for the U.S. and international community.
The scholars are available to discuss:

  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the nuclear agreement?
  • How will the outcome of the deal impact international relations and U.S. credibility?
  • What are the prospects of a renewed proliferation crisis that could lead to war?
  • Will the outcome of the deal mitigate Iran’s future development of new missiles?
  • How will Iran respond to President Trump’s criticism of the deal?
  • Will a stagnated deal empower Iranian headliners?
