The Regional Impact of Additional Iranian Money
Featuring Michael Eisenstadt, Simon Henderson, Michael Knights, Matthew Levitt, and Andrew Tabler
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) would enable Iran to gain access to tens of billions of dollars in currently frozen assets. While Tehran would likely use some of its new resources to address pressing domestic needs, it is widely assumed that substantial funds will also go toward bolstering Iranian proxy groups across the Middle East -- especially given Tehran's track record.
In this video, five Institute experts explore how this financial windfall will shake up the region, from the conflict in Syria, to the civil war in Yemen, to the political balance in Iraq, to support for Hamas and Hezbollah, and much more. Featuring analysts Michael Eisenstadt, Simon Henderson, Michael Knights, Matt Levitt and Andrew Tabler, the video is based on a recent Institute policy paper, "The Regional Impact of Additional Iranian Money."
