Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

About this Event

Participants

Ro Khanna represents California’s 17th Congressional District, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, and is serving his third term. Rep. Khanna sits on the House Committees on Agriculture, Armed Services, and Oversight and Reform, where he chairs the Environmental Subcommittee. Rep. Khanna has had an outspoken stance in opposition to the U.S. using unauthorized military interventionism over diplomacy with Iran. Last year, the House of Representatives passed Rep. Khanna’s bill to prevent taxpayer funding from being used to take military action against Iran without congressional authorization.

Vali Nasr is the Majid Khadduri Professor of Middle East Studies and International Affairs at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and spearheads the Rethinking Iran series at SAIS.

Overview

The last five years have put an unparalleled strain on the already tenuous relations between Washington and Tehran. As debates continue on the re-entrance of the U.S. to the Iran Deal, it’s hard to envision whether and how the growing tensions of this era will dissipate. Join us for a discussion with Rep. Khanna on the future of U.S.-Iran relations.

This event is part of Rethinking Iran at SAIS’s ongoing programming on the theme of “Iran and the US: A Critical Juncture,” which will include fireside chats, policy forums, and roundtable discussions.
