The implementation of the historic US-Iran Nuclear Deal has marked the beginning of a critical period for determining Iran’s future position in the international community. Middle East experts from the IMF and Brookings joined Johns Hopkins SAIS on February 17 to offer insights on the challenges and impact of the deal, as well as the future of Iran’s economy. Additionally, the speakers examined how the new political leadership in Iran will play a role in shaping Iran’s relations with the rest of the region.
