In mid July 2017, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – authored two additional op-eds on U.S. policy in the Middle East. Dr. Sheehan’s scholarship on regime change, policy-oriented writing, and media appearances have been influential in shaping Washington’s thinking on terrorism, the Iranian opposition, and the prospect of a democratic transition in Iran.

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

The first 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 proposes a formal shift in U.S. policy consistent with American national security interests and Department of State rhetoric.

In the second article Dr. Sheehan was invited by the French newspaper La Tribune to weigh in on the recent Trump-Macron meeting 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 submitted in English here.

The policy-oriented commentaries are 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.

Dr. Sheehan also published two widely circulated op-eds in June that addressed terrorism and U.S. Policy in Middle East.

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 July 2017, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan  Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – traveled to Paris as part of a distinguished research delegation examining the Iranian opposition in the lead up to the second anniversary of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran. The theme of the conference – regime change in Iran – was consistent with Dr. Sheehan’s policy-oriented writingscholarship, and media appearances, as well as analyses he has provided to policymakers in the U.S. Congress.

An invited guest of the organizing committee, Dr. Sheehan met with bipartisan U.S. officials during his visit to discuss Middle East policy as well as his scholarship on regime change. He also spoke at panel discussion featuring former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge and participated in extensive media coverage of the event. Topics raised by Dr. Sheehan in recent op-eds were also discussed by prominent U.S. and world leaders. The annual conference – which featured crowds estimated at more than 100,000 – is the largest annual gathering of the democratic Iranian opposition in exile and featured remarks by leaders from more than fifty countries, a bipartisan delegation of senior U.S. officials, and prominent academics from around the world. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, democracy, human rights, the rule of law, and the deteriorating situation in neighboring Syria and Iraq were discussed. The events, which were carried live in the U.S. by Fox News and The Washington Times, were also broadcast inside Iran by Voice of America and featured prominently in Arab newspapers.

Dignitaries in attendance included former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich; former FBI Director Louis Freeh, former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge; former U.S. Attorney General Judge Michael Mukasey; and former National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush, Frances Townsend, and many others. Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud, former Director of the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate in Saudi Arabia’s Intelligence Agency, pledged his commitment to regime change in Iran and expressed strong support for the Iranian resistance. Dr. Sheehan has written and spoken extensively on the concept of regime change in Iran in both scholarly and news outlets.

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – 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.

SHEEHAN: Conflict Transformation as Counterinsurgency | Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice | March 2014

Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice, 26:121–128; Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC; ISSN 1040-2659 print; 1469-9982; Online DOI: 10.1080/10402659.2014.876327

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan is published in the March 2014 edition of Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice. Dr. Sheehan’s latest study — Conflict Transformation as Counterinsurgency — is an empirical examination of the increasing usage of conflict transformation concepts in the context of counterinsurgency doctrine. Peace Review is a peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC/ Routledge that addresses current issues and controversies that underlie the promotion of a more peaceful world.

Excerpt | Conflict Transformation as Counterinsurgency | Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice | March 2014

…By October of 2008, Colonel Patrick Kelleher, in a report submitted to the Joint Military Operations Department at the Naval War College, had proposed that conflict transformation be embraced wholesale by the U.S. government as the primary framework and a “paradigm” for “Security, Stability, Transition and Reconstruction Operations (SSTR)” in what was now being called the “Long War” against insurgency. Borrowing from Lederach the importance of implementing a process to achieve “sustainable results” and from other influential work by Miall, Ramsbotham, and Woodhouse, he addressed the need to achieve transformation at five levels: “context transformation,” “structural transformation,” “actor transformation,” “issue transformation,” and “personal and group transformation.” But at each level, although he used the language of conflict transformation (paying attention to “basic human needs” and “empowering civil society”), he cast its intent in clearly utilitarian and prescriptive terms, such as to “win the peace,” “to establish a new domestic order,” and “to further U.S. objectives.”
