EVENT VIDEO: One Year into the United States' Maximum Pressure Campaign on Iran

The Atlantic Council’s Future of Iran Initiative and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) panel discussion assessing the impact and strategic implications of the United States’ “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran.

In a paper published by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in November 2019, Jalilvand, Slavin, Vogt, Zamirirad, and several other distinguished experts discuss the long-term significance of the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, with regard to Iran’s domestic politics, economy, and regional policy, as well as US policy toward Iran and European–Iranian relations. They find that sanctions have taken a heavy toll on the Iranian economy, while having a limited impact in depriving Tehran of the capability to develop nuclear weapons or in changing its regional posture. Several of the authors present their conclusions.


The event took place on Thursday, December 12, 2019 in cooperation with the Atlantic Council.
