Iranian Public Opinion on the Nuclear Negotiations

As negotiators from Iran and the P5+1 draw up a final agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program prior to the June 30 deadline, a number of key questions remain unanswered: Will the Iranian public support a final agreement within the outlines provided by the framework of understandings negotiated earlier this year? What expectations does the Iranian public have about the deal? How might these expectations pose challenges for the Rouhani government in selling a deal and sustaining support going into the next election?  How popular is Rouhani and his supporters in the Parliament?

A new study of Iranian public opinion conducted by, the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM), and the University of Tehran’s Center for Public Opinion Research in May 2015 explores Iranian public opinion on the nuclear negotiations.

Please join us for a presentation and discussion about the study’s findings in an event held on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 - 09:30 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Root Room (2nd floor), 1779 Massachusetts Avenue NW Washington, DC 20036.
