Tufts University - Spring 2009 Conference on Iran & the Middle East
Fares Center Spring 2009 Conference:"Foreign Policy Challenges for the New Administration: Iran and the Middle East"
The conference will be held at Tufts University on Thursday, March 5 (starting at 3:00 pm) and all day on Friday, March 6, 2009. A definitive conference program will be available soon on our website.
The purpose of this conference is to identify issues that will be of concern to Americans in 2009, specifically the continuing confrontation between the United States and Iran. The U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and subsequent developments in that country have had a significant—to American minds, exacerbating—impact on Iran’s position and policy there. Yet American and Iranian interests and policies have also collided in the Gulf and in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Nuclear issues in particular have brought the United States and Iran into renewed confrontation. The conference will address these concerns and how the new administration can take steps to change the dynamic in a helpful way.
The conference is an important component of our efforts to advance students’ understanding of political, historical, social, demographic, and economic issues of the Middle East through exposure to the views of distinguished world leaders, academics, and policy makers. We wish to present our students with a broad range of cultural perspectives and political opinions, and we are sure that the upcoming March conference will guarantee a panoply of diverse and stimulating viewpoints.
More information about this upcoming conference and past Fares Center events can be found on our website at http://farescenter.tufts.edu. Registration will be available from our website beginning early January 2009.
