Starr Forum on U.S.-Iran Relations


A Clear Guide

This panel discussion at the Starr Forum of May 5, 2009 is an unusually clear guide to current U.S.-Iranian relations, presented by moderator Barry Posen (Director of the School's Security Studies Program), and panelists Suzanne DiMaggio, Jim Walsh, and Stephen Heintz.

Under the Obama administration, the U.S. is moving toward a better relationship with Iran, but panelists explain that the two countries are still far from fruitful relations, and that achieving real diplomacy will paradoxically require both patience and a sense of urgency.
