Could Iran’s Regime Fall?
Protest, Nuclear Weapons, and U.S. Foreign Policy a Decade after the Arab Spring
Mahsa Amini, a young woman who was arrested by Iran’s morality police for wearing a hijab “improperly” was killed in police custody last fall. Since then, protests led by women have continued unabated. Many are calling the moment the greatest challenge to Iran’s Supreme Leader since the 1979 Iranian revolution. Still, amid the public furor, Iran’s nuclear program continues in the absence of international inspections, with U.S. intelligence estimating the country has stockpiled fissile material that if further enriched could be enough for several bombs. What is going on in Iran? Could the regime fall? What is different about these protests compared to earlier demonstrations? How close is it to the point of no-return for a nuclear weapon? And how does the Iranian protest movement compare to the revolutions that swept the Middle East as part of the Arab Spring 12 years ago? Understanding the dynamics in Iran, the broader Middle East, and what role the U.S. could or should play in the region will be the focus of this discussion.
