The French-American Foundation hosted its Transatlantic Forum on Iran on Wednesday, June 13th. In an increasingly interconnected global environment, our members-only events assemble French and American leaders in business, politics, education, and culture who care about enriching the transatlantic relationship. Our dinner discussions provide the ideal backdrop for open exchanges on topics of mutual interests.
Guest speaker Dr. Kian Tajbakhsh, Visiting Professor of Urban Planning at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) (www.arch.columbia.edu/faculty/391-kian-tajbakhsh) engaged our members in a fascinating discussion on “Iran: Transitions and Turning Points Over the Last Twenty Years and Prospects for the Near Future.”
The conversation addressed many topics including, among others, Iran’s domestic and foreign policy, the evolution of the country over the past twenty years, the current regime, Teheran’s negotiation strategies, Syria, and American foreign policy in the Middle East.
The French-American Foundation will resume its Transatlantic Forum discussion dinners with the second cycle of events commencing in the fall.
