The International Diplomacy Initiative presenting: “Current Affairs in Iran: Protests and the Nuclear Deal” by Dr. Ori Goldberg

On September 16, 2022, a young Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini (a.k.a. Jina Amini), passed away after she was arrested for not wearing a Hijab. While the Iranian government denies responsibility, claiming Ms. Amini died of unrelated medical issues. Eyewitnesses reported that she was beaten to death by Iran’s ‘morality police’. Her death triggered a series of anti-regime protests across Iran and evoked a great deal of sympathy worldwide. These events are taking place while Iran is in the process of negotiating a nuclear agreement to lift western sanctions. The Iranian currency has reached a historically low exchange rate of 330,000 rials to 1 dollar (October 2, 2022). Are these protests different from the protests of 2009, 2017 and 2019? What are the implications of current events on the nuclear deal?
