Next week, the President is likely to announce that he will no longer certify the Iran nuclear agreement is in the U.S. national interest. This decision will have consequences for the United States in the Middle East as well as potentially beyond. The Center on Global Energy Policy will host an expert panel to discuss the decision and its implications. The panel will consider the impact on the nuclear agreement itself; how Congress, U.S. partners, and Iran will react; and, what will come next for U.S. sanctions and energy markets.

Expert panelists will include:

  • Richard Nephew, former Principal Deputy Coordinator for Sanctions Policy at the Department of State and CGEP Senior Research Scholar
  • Avril Haines  Senior Researcher for Columbia World Projects, former White House Deputy National Security Advisor, and former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency for the Obama Administration 
  • Helima Croft, Head of Commodity Strategy, ‎RBC Capital Markets
  • Jason Bordoff, CGEP Founding Director (moderator)
