The Trump administration’s “maximum pressure campaign” is putting Iran under great stress, but it is unlikely to compel Tehran to accept its far-reaching demands. The United States needs a new strategy for constraining Iran’s future nuclear capabilities as well as its missile program. Two new Brookings monographs — “Constraining Iran’s Future Nuclear Capabilities” by Robert Einhorn and Richard Nephew, and “Constraining Iran’s Missile Program” by Robert Einhorn and Vann Van Diepen – provide recommendations for addressing the challenges to regional and international security posed by Iran’s nuclear and missile programs.

On Thursday, March 28, the Foreign Policy program at Brookings will hold a public event where the authors – Einhorn, Nephew, and Van Diepen – will summarize the reports’ principal findings and recommendations, and Brookings Senior Fellow Suzanne Maloney will provide commentary from 2:00 to 3:30 PM.

After their discussion, the panelists will take audience questions.
