The Iran Nuclear Agreement – concluded between Iran and the permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany and the European Union – allows for the economic, political and social re-integration of that country into the international community. The key to the success of this agreement lies in the gradual lifting of international sanctions imposed on Iran in the US as well as at the UN and EU level. This sanctions regime is legally and institutionally highly complex. Its removal is therefore not only politically contentious but also technically challenging. Furthermore, given the complicated domestic political, economic, legal and institutional landscape, the implications of an easing of international sanctions are difficult to predict. Despite these difficulties, however, the importance of the country for regional stability, the large potential of its economy for western trade, and the size of its uncharacteristically urban and well-educated population make a rigorous investigation urgently necessary.


At this two-day conference, we intend to bring together a diverse range of international and commercial lawyers, business representatives, area specialists, social and political scientists as well as ministry staff and diplomats to shed light on the likely impact this agreement will have on the political and economic development in Iran and the broader Middle-East region.
