Friedmann Conference: Security, Sanction, and Human Rights - The Iran Dilemma

Start/End Tuesday, April 02, 2013 02:40 PM EDT -- 04:00 PM EDT
Location Name JG Annex

Iran has been subject to increasingly stringent and wide-ranging sanctions over the past several years as concern about Iran’s nuclear ambitions continues to mount. Participants on this panel will discuss the legal framework and substance of the sanctions, what they are designed to achieve, whether they are achieving those goals, and at what costs in terms of effects on ordinary Iranians. This panel will be moderated by Sarah Cleveland, Louis Henkin Professor in Human and Constitutional Rights and Faculty Co-Director of Columbia's Human Rights Institute.
