    Germany's Pivotal Role in the Iranian Nuclear Standoff
    Georgina Jones November 20, 2007

    Presidents George W. Bush and Nicolas Sarkozy have called for greater coercive measures against Tehran for its continued uranium-enrichment activities in defiance of legally binding UNSC resolutions. Unless Iran faces stricter sanctions or other clear costs for pursuing its nuclear program, Tehran will not change its nuclear course and implement the requirements of UNSC Resolutions 1737 and 1747.

    Perkovich: Pressures and Benefits Must Be Made Clearer to Iran
    George Perkovich November 19, 2007 Council on Foreign Relations Interview

    Increasing pressure from the UN Security Council on Iran's nuclear program, while making clear the benefits to Iran of engaging in negotiations, is the only effective strategy to resolving the Iran nuclear dispute diplomatically.

    A Chance for Nuclear Leadership
    Deepti Choubey November 7, 2007

    The most important strategic foreign policy issue facing the next President and Congress will be how to prevent the further spread of nuclear weapons. For almost four decades the world has been protected by a global agreement -- the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty -- which worked to keep the number of nuclear weapon states small. That agreement badly needs U.S. leadership.

    Iran: Reality, Opinions, and Consequences
    Karim Sadjadpour October 30, 2007 Testimony before the House Oversight Committee's National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee عربي

    The United States must alter its democracy promotion strategy, which has been unconstructive and counterproductive, and make clear that it has no intention of undermining Iran's territorial integrity. A move away from democracy promotion, however, should not signal indifference to human rights abuses.

    Verifying Iran's Nuclear Program: Is the International Community Up To the Task?
    Pierre Goldschmidt October 30, 2007 Lamont Lecture at the Belfer Center

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) faces a critical test this November when it will issue its latest report on Iran's nuclear activities. A condemning report by the IAEA could prompt Iran to end all cooperation with the IAEA. Yet a falsely reassuring report could damage the credibility of the nonproliferation regime.

    New Sanctions Likely to Worry Moscow, Beijing More Than Tehran
    Karim Sadjadpour October 26, 2007 Council on Foreign Relations Interview

    With world demand for oil mounting and oil prices so high it’s very difficult to isolate Iran financially these days. Sanctions against Iran will have more impact in Moscow, Beijing, and European capitals than in Tehran.

    The Nuclear Gambit with Iran
    Rose Gottemoeller October 24, 2007 The Moscow Times

    When President Vladimir Putin was in Tehran last week, one image from the trip was indelible: Putin meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei while President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sat in the corner of the sofa. Putin apparently made an offer directly to the supreme leader about a way to move forward in the nuclear standoff. According to the proposal, the six parties negotiating with Iran would pause on seeking sanctions in the United Nations Security Council if Iran would pause on its enrichment program.

    Partial Progress
    Sharon Squassoni October 11, 2007 The Guardian

    Last week, the six-party negotiations (which include the United States, China, Russia, Japan, North Korea and South Korea) agreed on a second phase of a plan to denuclearize North Korea that has under discussion since 2005. This plan goes further than the agreed framework by requiring "disablement" of North Korean plutonium production facilities, but is troublingly silent on a few things.

    Six Years Later: Assessing Long-Term Threats, Risks and the U.S. Strategy for Security in a Post-9/11 World
    Jessica Tuchman Mathews October 10, 2007 Testimony before the House Oversight Committee's National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee

    The Iraq war will be the turning point that changes the basic parameters of our security picture for decades. The war's monopoly on our political energy, which has now stretched to five years -- an eon in a time of fast-moving global change -- is one of its greatest uncounted costs.

    Reinvigorate Nuclear Nonproliferation
    Jessica Tuchman Mathews September 10, 2007 Democracy: A Journal of Ideas

    The Iraq war’s monopoly on America’s political energy has now stretched to five years. During what is an eon in a time of fast-moving global change, a number of international security problems have grown into full-blown crises. Unless a major effort is made to reverse current trends, the fissures now spreading across the global nonproliferation regime could easily become the worst of these crises.

    Rule of Law, Politics and Nuclear Nonproliferation
    Pierre Goldschmidt September 7, 2007 Presentation to the Ecole Internationale de Droit Nucléaire (International School of Nuclear Law) at the University of Montpellier in France

    Legal ambiguities and contractual loopholes in provisions of the NPT and IAEA safeguards agreements usually serve the purpose of those who wish to evade their obligations while claiming that they are doing nothing illegal.

    Iran's Plan for Nuclear Compliance
    Sharon Squassoni, Nima Gerami September 6, 2007

    A report from the IAEA laying out a timeline for Iran to resolve outstanding issues related to its nuclear program may give Iran as much as eight months of continued centrifuge installation and operation.

    The India Nuclear Deal: The Top Rule-maker Bends the Rules
    Sharon Squassoni August 16, 2007 International Herald Tribune

    The White House reached a deal late last month to provide India with U.S. civil nuclear cooperation, reversing a ban on such cooperation that had been in place since 1978. After India's first nuclear test in 1974, the United States decided to halt nuclear exports to countries that have not signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, and persuaded the rest of the world's nuclear suppliers to make this a global rule in 1992. India, Israel and Pakistan refused to sign the treaty and instead produced nuclear arsenals. The Bush administration now wants to remove the longstanding restrictions on India, and to persuade the rest of the world to do the same.

    Proliferation Trilogy: North Korea, Iran, and India
    George Perkovich, Bernard Gwertzman August 13, 2007 Council on Foreign Relations Interview

    George Perkovich says that among the current problems with North Korea, India, and Iran, Iran is the most important to resolve because the Iranians are trying to defy international opinion and produce a nuclear weapons capability after having been exposed in the act of trying.
