Iran: Crisis of Legitimacy?
Seattle, WA, USA
Instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be resent the day before the program.
Earlier this month, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was arrested, apparently for concerns about her hijab by Iran's morality police. Her death in police custody sparked protests that spread across Iran. The Iranian president was in New York for the United Nations General Assembly when the protests broke out, giving world leaders, including President Joe Biden, the opportunity to voice their support for the women of Iran. Are these protests different from earlier demonstrations that have wracked Iran before or could this be a spark for change in Iran?
Join the World Affairs Council and Iran expert Dr. Suzanne Maloney, Vice President and Director of the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution, for a conversation about what the future trajectory of Iran might look like; what role, if any, the United States should seek to play; and how these protests could affect the long-tense U.S.-Iran relationship.
