    Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy

    Join us for a lively discussion about Iran, its relationship with the West, and how the fate of the Iranian nuclear deal might impact U.S. relations with our European partners in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Trita Parsi is the founder and president of the National Iranian American Council and an expert on US-Iranian relations, Iranian foreign politics, and the geopolitics of the Middle East. His two previous books on U.S. Iran relations (Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Iran, Israel and the United States (Yale University Press 2007) and A Single Roll of the Dice - Obama's Diplomacy with Iran (Yale University Press 2012) have been widely praised for their scholarship and insight. His latest book - Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy (Yale University Press, 2017) - reveals the behind the scenes story to the historic nuclear deal with Iran. Copies of the new book will be available for sale and the author will sign copies after his presentation.

    Parsi was born in Iran but moved with his family at the age of four to Sweden in order to escape political repression in Iran. His father was an outspoken academic who was jailed by the Shah and then by the Ayatollah. He moved to the United States as an adult and studied foreign policy at Johns Hopkins’ School for Advanced International Studies where he received his Ph.D. He founded NIAC to provide a non-partisan, non-profit organization through which Iranian-Americans could participate in American civic life. NIAC is a vocal proponent of dialogue and engagement between the US and Iran.
