Joy Casino Ап Икс Unresolved: The Iran Threat - Open to Debate
February 16, 2024

Post-October 7th, Iran’s presence in the Middle East—and on the world stage—is growing stronger, many say, given its nuclear ambitions and its use of proxies in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, most recently disrupting shipping in the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. Its regional dominance is expanding, but is it also emerging as a global threat as it aligns with other authoritarian regimes? In Open to Debate’s Unresolved format and in partnership with the Council on Foreign Relations, National Security Council and State Department veterans will debate Biden’s Iran diplomacy, the country’s use of proxies in the Middle East, its nuclear ambitions, and whether Iran now poses a threat to the global order.

This debate was recorded live on January 25, 2024, in Washington D.C. at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Feature Debate Topics:

  • Has Biden’s Iran Diplomacy Failed?
  • Can Israel Live with a Nuclear Iran?
  • Does Iran Pose a Threat to the Global Order?
10:00 AM Friday, February 16, 2024
