Israel/Iran and the Bomb (Updated 11/9/12)
4:30 pm – 6:30 pm, Monday, November 12 (2012), Abramson Family Founders Room, SIS Building
Does Iran actually aims at developing nuclear weapons? Are Israel or the United States likely to strike Iran militarily and what are the potential results of such a strike? Are there alternatives to a military strike? Could a nuclear Iran be contained or deterred? And what are the long-term prospects for a nuclear free Middle East?
This panel of experts, moderated by SIS Dean James Goldgeier, will provide spectrum of perspectives on the topic and clear some of the “fog of war” that surrounds this increasingly threatening situation.
