Breaking News: The Contemporary Middle East

Event Navigation

Join The Center at Camden County College for their lecture series “Breaking News: The Contemporary Middle East” on Thursdays at 7 PM. 

This week’s topic is “What Iran Wants” led by Dr. Paul Pillar. The Islamic Republic of Iran is routinely portrayed in American discourse as an arch-nemesis and a regional marauder on its way to domination of the Middle East. The reality of Iranian objectives and capabilities, and of their implications for US interests, is more complex than that. Iran’s policies toward conflicts in its region reflect the country’s geopolitical circumstances much more than the coloration of its current regime. An understanding of Iranian interests and goals illuminates Iran’s responses to US policies of pressure and rejection, as well as being necessary for devising a more constructive relationship.
