Iran Takes a Conservative Turn

Wednesday, October 26, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Virtual
Sponsored By: 
ACMCU

Announced by the University of Pittsburgh:

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed in 2015, in hopes of moving Iran's domestic and foreign policies in a moderate and reformist direction. However, while Iran completed its commitments, the United States failed to lift sanctions, actually imposing new sanctions under different pretexts. This further emboldened JCPOA oppositionists to further undermine the JCPOA.
