Barbara Slavin "Containment Can Work in Iran"
Some of you may remember how impressed we were when Barbara Slavin came to speak to us...just after her stint as a public policy scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the International Institute for Peace where she had written, Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies: Iran, the US and the Twisted Path to Confrontation. She is a regular commentator on US foreign policy and Iran on NPR, PBS and C-SPAN.
A career journalist, she has previously served as assistant managing editor of world and national security of The Washington Times, senior diplomatic reporter for USA TODAY, Cairo correspondent for The Economist and as an editor at The New York Times Week in Review. She is currently a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center. Ms. Slavin has covered the Arab-Israeli conflict and has made seven trips to Iran. She was the first US newspaper reporter to interview Iranian president Mahoud Ahmadinejad.
Iran is so important to the rest of the world now. Ms. Slavin is an expert, who speaks very clearly and you will come away understanding much more than you did before you came to hear her.
