|Law School faculty member invited to speak at Yale University|
Gregory Gordon, School of Law, has been invited to participate in a major international conference April 29-30, titled "Understanding the Challenge of Iran" at the Yale Club in Manhattan and Yale University.
Given recent geopolitical developments, including provocative policies and pronouncements by the Iranian Regime, as well as the impact of the recent United States National Intelligence Estimate, it is clear that there is a need to develop further understanding of this complex and changing issue. Through scholarly analysis and exchange, aspects of this subject matter, with profound regional and international implications, will be assessed by leading intellectual figures from around the world.
The conference will consist of four sessions that address the following topics:
-- The Iranian Revolutionary Regime: An Overview to Contemporary Domestic Human Rights
-- Ideology and the Regime's Support of International Terror
-- International Law and Incitement to Genocide
-- Strategic Issues: The Iranian Nuclear Program and Current Intelligence Assessments
-- A "roundtable discussion" to end the conference.
