EU-Iran Relations: From nuclear non-proliferation to socio-economic cooperation?

Event Agenda

The signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and global powers on 14 July 2015 represented a major turning point in the emerging strategic landscape in the Middle East. The nuclear deal has since become operational and led to the lifting by the EU and the US of nuclear-related sanctions. Other sanctions remain in place. But unhindered by US competition, European trade delegations have entered into a latter-day gold rush, led by stories about the untapped potential of the biggest market in the world to open up. As such, the EU has  been vested with both an opportunity and a responsibility to help Iran to properly reintegrate into the international system. 

Almost two years since the signing of the nuclear deal and in the wake of the re-election of President Rouhani, how has the EU’s fared in its diplomatic facilitation of the implementation of the JCPOA and how have EU-Iran relations developed? What lessons can be drawn for the future?

Participation in this event is exceptionally free of charge. A sandwich lunch will be served from 12.30 onwards.
