The group of 40 distinguished scholars and policy analysts has concluded that the administration must rebalance its dual-track approach to be effective in future relations with Iran. Seeking to chart a more promising course, the study group argues for a policy of “strategic engagement.”
Strategic engagement will face many hurdles. If it does not succeed, the measures set out in this report will provide a foundation for a policy of deterrence and dissuasion. If, however, strategic engagement helps to advance a comprehensive solution to the escalating stand-off with Iran, it will be far preferable to a march toward war, or to a policy directed at deterring Iran after it has succeeded in acquiring a nuclear-weapons capability.
The final report of the Iran Study Group, Engagement, Coercion, and Iran’s Nuclear Challenge, can be found here.
