- Is a compromise possible on their nuclear program?
- Does Iran sincerely wish to be part of the global community?
- Will we ever understand Iran and her people?
- Will they ever try, or care, to understand the West?
- With or without understanding, can our two countries arrive at aworkable relationship?
- What should the U.S. be doing to further this goal?
Haleh Esfandiari, a native of Tehran with a home in Washington, D.C., is uniquely qualified to discuss some answers to these questions. She is the Director of Middle East programs at the Smithsonian’s Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, where she organizes academic conferences on Iran.
