On September 12, four experts assessed the impact of the protest movement in Iran one year later. They also explored the state of Iranian politics, including the simmering internal flashpoints as well as the government’s response. The experts also analyzed Iran’s problems with the outside world, including the United States, on the eve of President Ebrahim Raisi’s trip to the United States for the U.N. General Assembly. The speakers were:
- Haleh Esfandiari: Distinguished Fellow and Director Emerita of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Middle East Program
- Henry Rome: Senior Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy
- Ali Vaez: Iran Project Director at the International Crisis Group
- Robin Wright (moderator): USIP-Wilson Center Distinguished Fellow; Author and columnist for The New Yorker.
The Woodrow Wilson Center hosted the event.
