While the UN Security Council imposed limited sanctions against Iran in December 2006, Tehran’s leadership remains defiant in the face of growing international pressure. Despite a surge in diplomatic activity, the Islamic Republic refuses to halt its uranium enrichment activities. Now, as permanent Security Council members and the German government enact more punitive measures, AEI and the German Marshall Fund (GMF) will cosponsor a traveling debate in Europe to examine what courses of action the United States and its allies can take against Iran.

Reuel Marc Gerecht, a resident fellow at AEI; Yossi Klein Halevi, a senior fellow at the Shalem Center in Israel and a contributing editor for The New Republic; and David Ignatius, a Washington Post columnist, will travel to Paris, Brussels, and Berlin to engage in roundtable debates and editorial meetings with local officials and media. In Paris, AEI, GMF, and the Institut Français des Relations Internationales will host a workshop with Philippe Carré, the director of strategic affairs for security and disarmament at the French Foreign Ministry, and Olivier Roy, a lecturer at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences and one of France’s great scholars on Islam and the Middle East. In Brussels, Ronald Asmus, the executive director of the GMF’s Transatlantic Center, and Roger Cooper, the general director for external and politico-military Affairs at the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union, will join the debate. Finally, in Berlin, Gero von Randow of Die Zeit and Ruprecht Polenz, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the German Bundestag, will participate in a discussion.
