Iran Project

To counter the threat Iran represents to America and its allies, FDD conducts detailed policy research, appears in print, online and broadcast media, and develops actionable policy recommendations. FDD's Iran team includes some of Washington's top experts on sanctions, illicit finance, nonproliferation, terrorism, human rights and Iran's domestic power apparatus.

FDD pushes for effective verification of the flawed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear accord, as well as holding Tehran accountable on its illicit ballistic missile program, the network of armed groups it supports, its illicit financial activities, worldwide media operations, and domestic repression.   

FDD Executive Director Mark Dubowitz is an expert on Iran’s global network, its nuclear, terrorist, missile and cyber, and is widely recognized as a key influencer in shaping sanctions policies. Senior Fellow Reuel Marc Gerecht, a senior fellow and former CIA Iran analyst, examines the inner workings of the Islamic Republic’s power structures, while Emanuele Ottolenghi tracks Iranian arms shipments to the war in Syria. Research Analyst Behnam Ben Taleblu tracks Iran’s missile program, while Amir Toumaj follows Tehran-backed militia in the Syrian war.
