How does strategic decision-making occur in Iran? And how does this translate into the domestic policymaking process of the state? This seminar will shed light on the opaque institutional architecture of the Islamic Republic and its impact on strategic governance. It will also examine the broader factional and ideological dynamics at play within the ruling elite in forging state policy. This process has broad implications not only for understanding the unique challenges facing the Rouhani administration domestically but also for grasping the complexity of the current nuclear negotiations, the importance of U.S. policy toward Iran, as well as the future trajectory of the Islamic Republic itself.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
