North Korea-Iran Nuclear Negotiations: What You Really Need To Know (Part 2)


Int'l Negotiation and Policy-Making

Since our last webinar, President Trump withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The idea of this plan was for the international community to help Iran develop economically, in exchange for Iran’s commitment to limit and accept oversight of its nuclear programme.

Further to President Trump’s decision, the European Union is trying to fast-track diplomacy with Iran to avoid a complete collapse of the deal, but many hurdles prevent Europeans from blocking the US decision.

Join a leading expert, Professor Grégoire Mallard, for an in-depth discussion on the nuclear negotiations as we ask:

  • What are the implications of Trump’s decision to pull out of the JCPOA for European sovereignty?
  • Can the European Union save the Iran deal?
  • If Europe cannot prevent its private investors from pulling out of Iran for fear of US secondary sanctions, is the deal bound to collapse?
  • More generally, what are the lessons learnt from the Iran nuclear case for the negotiation with North Korea?
