Roundtable Dialogue: Biden’s Iran Policy

Roundtable Dialogue: Biden’s Iran Policy

At this member-exclusive webinar, Mohammad Ayatollahi Tabaar, fellow for the Middle East at the Baker Institute, discussed how United States-Iran relations might change under the Biden administration. Will the new administration return to Obama's nuclear agreement with Tehran, or will Biden continue with Trump's "maximum pressure" policy to forge a new agreement with Iran?

Roundtable Dialogues are informal, member-exclusive discussions with Baker Institute experts on current events, politics and policy. These thought-provoking conversations provide insights into issues that affect policy at local, national and global levels.
