The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) have the pleasure of inviting you to a very timely event, featuring the participation of Dr. Seyed Mohammad Kazem Sajjadpour, Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran and President of Institute for Political and International Studies (IPIS) in Tehran. The event will also bring together some leading European, Iranian and international scholars and researchers and EU practitioners dealing with European policy towards Iran and the Middle East.
The event coincides with the launch of an important publication, marking the completion of a one-year research and public engagement project, jointly-coordinated by FEPS and IAI focused on Europe-Iran relations, entitled ‘Europe and Iran in a Fast-Changing Middle East: Confidence Building Measures, Security Dialogue and Regional Cooperation’. The publication consists of five research studies on different dimensions of EU-Iran relations, Iranian foreign policy and regional and international geopolitical tensions in the Middle East. A final policy strategy report, including recommendations for EU member states and institutions, is also included in the edited volume and will be presented at the event.
