Role of Sanctions in the Iran Nuclear Agreement

The Heritage Foundation hosted an event on August 13  to analyze the state of sanctions following the nuclear agreement with Iran. 

The event, Assessing the Iran Nuclear Agreement: Placing Sanctions in Context, focuses on the remaining sanctions architecture of the U.S. and E.U., the possibility of 'snapback sanctions' if Iran violates the deal, and explores alternatives to the agreement moving forward.
