How does the "new" Middle East look now that the Iran deal is done? David Rothkopf, Rosa Brooks, Kori Schake, and David Sanger debate.
- By David RothkopfDavid Rothkopf is visiting professor at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs and visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. His latest book is The Great Questions of Tomorrow. He has been a longtime contributor to Foreign Policy and was CEO and editor of the FP Group from 2012 to May 2017.
As the ink dries on the Iran nuclear deal, FP Group CEO and Editor David Rothkopf sits down at The Editor’s Roundtable (The E.R.) with Foreign Policy columnists Rosa Brooks and Kori Schake and New York Times Washington correspondent David Sanger to hash out just what trickle-down effects this supposed landmark agreement may have on the world — whether it has paved the way for normalized relations between the United States and Iran and whether it has just been a sideshow to a boom of Tehran’s influence across the region. Either way, it’s poised to impact politics from Damascus to Paris, Moscow to Washington. As the world plays the waiting game to see the real benefits (or fallout) from the Iran deal, this week’s episode of The E.R. explores what’s coming down the line.
