"The View from Tehran"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Steven E. Miller, Director, International Security Program; Editor-in-Chief, International Security; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

"Iran is a normal country. We are not evil and we do not understand why the U.S. government includes us in the axis of evil." This was a common refrain encountered in Tehran in May 2004 by a visiting group of Westerners, including myself, organized by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The visit included a workshop on Iran's relations with the West held in collaboration with Iran's Institute for Political and International Studies. The time in Tehran-a huge, traffic-choked city-also included sessions at the Faculty of Law and Political Science of the University of Tehran and at Tehran's Center for Strategic Studies, as well as meetings with senior officials from the Foreign Ministry and the Expediency Council.

New Global Dangers

International Security Reader

By Michael E. Brown, Editorial Board Member and Former Co-Editor, Quarterly Journal: International Security, Owen R. Coté, Editor, International Security, Sean M. Lynn-Jones, Editor, International Security; Series Editor, Belfer Center Studies in International Security and Steven E. Miller, Director, International Security Program; Editor-in-Chief, International Security; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

The book looks first at the relationship between weapons and security, discussing such aspects of proliferation as "nuclear entrepreneurship" in Russia and the threat of biological warfare. It then examines nonmilitary security concerns, including resource scarcity, migration, HIV/AIDS in Africa, and why humanitarian assistance sometimes does more harm than good. Finally, it looks at the role of transnational actors, including terrorist groups, nongovernmental organizations, and the privatized military industry.
