Dr. Trita Parsi on Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy at the Swedish Residence

The Uppsala University U.S. Alumni Chapter is happy to announce that we have the honor of featuring Uppsala University Alumnus of the Year, Dr. Trita Parsi, on June 28th in New York City. Dr. Parsi will share his experiences advising the Obama Administration on the Iran nuclear deal and give us behind-the-scenes insights on the power of diplomacy. 

 
Of the many brewing international crises in the horizon, few are as explosive as the tensions between the United States and Iran. Despite the success of the nuclear deal of 2015, the Trump administration has vowed to undo the agreement, or at a minimum, ratchet up tensions with Iran in the region.

But how did the agreement come about, and what could cause it to survive the current turmoil? Based on more than 75 interviews with the key players in this international drama - from Secretary John Kerry to Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to Obama's closest advisors - award winning author Trita Parsi reveals the behind-the-scenes story of how and why the historic nuclear deal with Iran was struck in his new book, Losing an Enemy - Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy (Yale University Press, 2017).

Please RSVP by June 26 to susanna.kolding@gov.se

Space is limited.
