Iran and the West: a conflict without resolution?
London EC1M 6EL.

With Yassamine Mather.
The relationship between Iran and the West appears to have reached a new low point. The nuclear agreement with Iran is on the point of collapse following US re-imposition of sanctions, and the naval build up and standoff over oil supplies in the Strait of Hormuz is dangerous. The potential for armed conflict is very real, and there are powerful interests in the US and elsewhere, keen to promote such a conflict.

Yassamine Mather is the Acting Editor of the Academic Journal Critique, and is a regular contributor to TV and radio programmes on BBC Persian.

Nearest tube station Farringdon. 6.45pm (doors open 6.30).
