Iran's new leadership inspires some hope that a diplomatic solution could be found to the  stand-off over Iran's nuclear activities.  But there is little agreement in the United States, especially in the Congress, over what an acceptable diplomatic solution would be.  Israel and the United States might differ, too.  George Perkovich — based on twenty-years' work on the Iranian nuclear challenge and extensive interactions with U.S., European, Israeli, and Iranian officials — will sketch a framework that could satisfy all sides, and then describe why it may be harder to implement a deal in Washington than in Tehran.

Coffee and tea will be provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
