SHEEHAN | Trump Sanctions Set Stage for Necessary Regime Change in Iran | The Hill | 4 AUG 2017

On August 4, 2017, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – authored an op-ed in the congressional newspaper The Hill on the value of the bipartisan passage of the sanctions legislation directed at Iran, North Korea, & Russia. The Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017 (H.R. 3364) passed through both chambers of the U.S. Congress with more support than almost any piece of major legislation in recent memory. Dr. Sheehan’s scholarship on regime change, policy-oriented writing, and media appearances have been influential in shaping Washington’s thinking on the prospect of a democratic transition in Iran and curtailing Tehran’s state-sponsored terrorism through sanctions and support of the Iranian opposition.

During summer 2017, Dr. Sheehan authored a number of influential op-eds that were shared thousands of times via social media and circulated in Washington’s policy community. The articles raised themes that were subsequently picked up by prominent U.S. officials in public remarks and prior to important votes. These included:

SHEEHAN | Trump Sanctions Set Stage for Necessary Regime Change in Iran | The Hill | 4 AUG 2017

SHEEHAN | Iran Ripe for Regime Change Two Years After Nuclear Deal | New York Daily News | 14 JUL 2017

SHEEHAN | Trump et Macron devraient décourager les entreprises d’investir en Iran | Translation | Trump and Macron Should Jointly Discourage Businesses from Investing in Iran | La Tribune | 13 JUL 2017

SHEEHAN | Trump is Right to Focus on Iran’s Support of Terrorism | The Baltimore Sun | 26 JUN 2017

SHEEHAN | In Discussing Middle East Policy, US Should Acknowledge the Goal of Regime Change | Townhall | 19 JUN 2017

SHEEHAN et al | Why the World Needs a Metropolitan Compact: A New Vision for the Future of Sustainability | Citiscope | 19 JUN 2017

SHEEHAN | When Iran Votes For President Friday, Is It A Referendum On The Future Or More Of The Same? | Independent Journal Review | 17 May 2017

Dr. Sheehan‘s article in New York Daily News was published on the second anniversary of the conclusion of negotiations that resulted in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran (JCPOA) and proposed a formal shift in U.S. policy consistent with American national security interests and Department of State rhetoric. Learn more here.

In the article that follows, Dr. Sheehan was invited by the French newspaper La Tribune to weigh in on the Trump-Macron summit in Paris. The op-ed was translated into French as the heads of state met in private and shared with U.S. and E.U. dignitaries. Read the original article in English here and learn more here.

Dr. Sheehan also published two widely circulated articles in June that addressed terrorism and U.S. policy in Middle East, including one in The Baltimore Sun.

Each of the the policy-oriented commentaries were in keeping with remarks that Dr. Sheehan made at a panel discussion for U.S. officials in Europe earlier this summer where he spoke alongside former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge and joined a distinguished international research delegation.

This past June, Dr. Sheehan also served as the Moderator for the National Geographic Channel premiere of Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria & the Rise of ISIS in Washington, D.C. The documentary – by Academy-Award nominated filmmaker and New York Times #1 best-selling author Sebastian Junger and Emmy award winner Nick Quested – traced the origins of the Syrian crisis and the rise of Islamic State. In June Dr. Sheehan also delivered a keynote address at a think-tank in Paris, France and co-authored a Citiciscope article.

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan is the Director of the graduate programs in Negotiations & Conflict Management and Global Affairs & Human Security in the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore.

In advance of the annual forum, Dr. Sheehan co-authored an article in Citiscope with colleagues from Paris and Morocco titled Why the World Needs a Metropolitan Compact: A New Vision for the Future of Sustainability.

A generation ago, the United Nations launched the Global Compact, an effort to connect sustainability with private-sector entrepreneurism. Today, it is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, involving more than 12,000 signatories from over 160 countries.

The creation of the Global Compact was a landmark event in that it signalled the international community’s recognition of the need for a broad-based, multi-stakeholder approach to sustainability. Using that idea, we are now calling for new global recognition of one of the most powerful trends shaping worldwide systems today: metropolitanization. We call this new vision the Metropolitan Compact.

Learn more about Dr. Sheehan’s grant-funded work  including a two-year long initiative the resulted in the publication of an 84 page technical report  on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
