The Situation In Iran

Copley Formal Lounge, 7:15pm - 9:00pm


On Friday, January 3, Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani was killed in an American drone strike ordered by President Trump. In the wake of Soleimani’s death, leaders at home and abroad have expressed concern over the repercussions of the strike, and Iran’s government has threatened to retaliate against the U.S. As the world awaits Tehran’s next move, we’ll break down dynamics on the international stage and convene a conversation on potential implications for U.S. foreign policy with a panel of experts. We hope you will join us for this timely conversation.
