Moderated by Bill Natter
Council for Emerging National Security Affairs
Following talks that spanned 20 months, the West and Iran have a last reached a deal aimed at curtailing Tehran’s nuclear program. What are some of the broader issues and interests surrounding the agreement and the future of the Iranian nuclear program? What are the effects of the deal likely to be, both in the Middle East and the wider world?
We’d like to examine this topic in detail, so to that end the Council for Emerging National Security Affairs is excited to present a call-in conversation with Dr. Glenn E. Robinson, an Associate Professor in the Department of Defense Analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Dr. Robinson first studied in the Middle East as an exchange student in Iran in 1978, and since then he has lived and studied throughout the Middle East at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the University of Jordan in Amman, the American University in Cairo, and Yarmouk University in Jordan. Dr. Robinson is currently a Research Associate with the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Currently a Member of the Board at CENSA and a security consultant to the federal government, Bill spent more than 20 years in government service working on various strategic matters, special operations, and related intelligence issues.
