The Atlantic Council's Future of Iran Initiative and The Iran Project invite you to a symposium on the future of the Iran nuclear deal a year after its full implementation. How well is the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) working? How is the JCPOA affecting US interests and actions in other parts of the region? What are the JCPOA's prospects under the Trump administration?

This panel will discuss the record of the nuclear agreement as well as what needs to be done to sustain implementation and possible problems that could arise from the United States, European Union, and Iranian sides.
