The Iran Nuclear Agreement: Containment or Catastrophy?
On Thursday, September 17th at 7 in Crowder Hall in the School of Music at the University of Arizona, three experts from the University of Arizona will assess the implications of the Iran Agreement. The Iranian nuclear deal — officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, signed in Vienna on July 14th, approved unanimously by the UN Security Counsel on July 20th, and currently being reviewed in Congress — initiates a new era in terms of Iran’s potential as a nuclear power, its relationship with the international community, and especially its relations with its regional neighbors.
Prof. Philip Pinto from the College of Science, Prof. Ghosn from the School of Government and Public Policy, and Prof. Asher from The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies will explain the scientific, diplomatic and regional complexities involved in this transformational agreement. Will the transformations this agreement initiates be positive or negative? As America’s elected officials examine this agreement, this panel will offer clear explanations of the key elements in the deal and the potential consequences of its implementation.
The panel will be moderated by Joaquin Ruiz, Dean of the College of Science, and J. Edward Wright, Director of Judaic Studies.
