March 31, 2008, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
Ze'ev Maghen and Hillel Fradkin
The Islamic Republic of Iran has been at the center of America's foreign policy debate, but little is known about the ideas that shape Iran's own domestic and foreign agenda, including its nuclear ambitions and its policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the Middle East.
To shed some light on the sources of Iran's outlook and strategy, Ze'ev Maghen, a lecturer in Middle Eastern history at Israel's Bar-Ilan University and a leading Israeli specialist on modern Iran, Shiism, and Persian Gulf politics, discussed the modern history of radical Iranian thought and how this informs current events and world politics.
The discussion was chaired by Hillel Fradkin, director of Hudson's Center on Islam, Democracy, and the Future of the Muslim World, and co-editor of the center's journal Current Trends in Islamist Ideology.
