PRESS RELEASE: Iran Nuclear Deal & Congressional Oversight (Honoring the Legacy of Paul L. Leventhal) | National Press Club | Washington, D.C. | August 4, 2015

WASHINGTON, July 31, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The following is being issued by the Iran Policy Committee Publishing and Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project:

WHEN: 10:00am-11:00am, Tuesday, 4 August 2015

WHERE: Murrow Room, National Press Club, 529 14th St. NW, Wash. DC 20045

WHY: Nuclear talks with Iran touched off a fierce debate in Washington over the nature of the accord and its review by Congress. Honoring the legacy of Paul Leventhal, a pioneer of Congressional oversight of nuclear nonproliferation who later highlighted the threat of Islamist Iran and its pursuit of nuclear weapons, this panel will critically examine key aspects of the accord that Congress is to assess under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015.

As a Senate aide, Leventhal organized hearings leading to the 1978 Nuclear Nonproliferation Act.  He then created the Nuclear Control Institute, and subsequently joined the board of the Iran Policy Committee, which Raymond Tanter heads, at its debut conference on 23 February 2005. After Leventhal’s passing in 2007, NCI’s papers were archived at the University of Texas, which established the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project and the Leventhal Fellowship.

The NPPP is coordinated by Prof. Alan J. Kuperman, who has written most recently on breakout and proliferation consequences of theIran deal.

Prof. Ivan Sascha Sheehan directs graduate programs in Negotiations and Conflict Management/ Global Affairs and Human Security. The author of several critiques of preemptive force, Sheehan writes and speaks on matters pertinent to congressional oversight of theIran deal, including regime change from within, the Iran threat, and the main Iranian opposition to a nuclear-armed Iran. Sheehan will assess future scenarios and contingencies for the congressional review.

Writings of Tanter include Arab Rebels and Iranian Dissidents, Iran’s Breakout and Sneakout, and Appeasing the Ayatollahs and Suppressing Democracy.

Speakers:

Prof. Alan J. Kuperman, Associate Professor, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin, coordinates the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project.

Prof. Ivan Sascha Sheehan, Associate Professor & Graduate Program Director, School of Public and International Affairs, University of Baltimore.

Chair, Moderator, and Commentator:

Emeritus Prof. Raymond Tanter, University of Michigan, is President of Iran Policy Committee Publishing and former member of the National Security Council staff and Representative of the Secretary of Defense to arms control talks.
