Debating Engagement in Iran
Since June’s presidential election, Iran has experienced a massive political upheaval, and just last week the U.S. and Iran engaged in breakthrough discussions on Iran’s nuclear program. Are these two developments related? On Friday, October 16, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, In These Times co-sponsored a public exploration of this pivotal moment in Iran’s history and the critical issues involved in their peace movement. The selected panel for Debating Engagement: A Critical Dialogue Among Progressives on Iran & the Peace Movement featured the National Coordinator of Just Foreign Policy Robert Naiman and DePaul University Professor of International Studies Kaveh Ehsani.
