Presented by CIPS and the Fragile States Research Network

Recent events in the Middle East have raised concerns over a potential war between Iran and the United States. While many have commented on the likelihood of such an event, few have assessed the broader implications of Trump’s actions with regard to the norms of our current international order, the fallout inside Iran, and the geopolitical consequences for the Middle East. The objective of this special event is to provide the space for a more comprehensive assessment of the local, regional and international consequences of the American and Iranian actions.
