When the Middle East is in the news, it can be hard to understand the context. Paul Barker traces the history of Iran and their relations with the United States with remarkable clarity and optimism.
Paul Barker was most recently Country Director for Save the Children International in Afghanistan. He will share insights about opportunities for improving relations between Iran and the U.S. in the context of popular feelings towards America by most Iranians, negotiations over the Iranian nuclear program, the threats and opportunities posed by ISIS, and U.S. desire to end its military engagement in Afghanistan.
