The future of Iranian power in the Middle East

  • American Enterprise Institute 1789 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Iran is at an inflection point in its foreign and security policies. For the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Tehran deployed overt conventional forces to prop up Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This is but one example of Tehran’s new thinking as it prepares to majorly shift its strategic posture, taking advantage of a changing Middle East and billions of dollars in new resources after the nuclear deal. AEI Resident Fellow Matthew McInnis’ new monograph, “The Future of Iran’s Security Policy,” provides policymakers with an analytical tool kit to better manage conflict with Tehran and understand and combat the Islamic Republic’s destabilizing agenda in the Middle East.

The American Enterprise Institute is hosting Lt. Gen. Thomas Trask and retired Vice Adm. Mark Fox to mark the monograph’s release with a discussion on the future of Iranian power in the Middle East, the challenge it poses to the US, and how Washington can respond.
