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 | 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 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.

FILM PREMIERE | Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria & the Rise of ISIS | National Geographic Channel

On June 6, 2017, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – 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 – traces the origins of the Syrian crisis and the rise of Islamic State.

Learn more http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/hell-on-earth/

Time Magazine notes that the film “traces how the bloody crackdown on youth dissent in March 2011 metastasized into the intractable conflict that today has left an estimated 500,000 dead and millions uprooted.”

“Syria became a civil war in response to the violence of the government; eventually Iran got involved through Hezbollah to support the Assad regime. The Kurds got involved. Turkey got involved. The Arab Gulf states got involved. Eventually all the world powers and all the regional powers had some investment in the war in Syria and in many cases were actively involved in the fighting.” 

Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria & the Rise of ISIS – which featured at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival has been screened to wide acclaim by critics and audiences around the world – debuts on National Geographic Channel on Sunday, 11 June at 9 PM EST.

About the Film Co-Directors:

Sebastian Junger is an Academy-Award nominated filmmaker and New York Times No. 1 best-selling author of books including War and Tribe. As an award-winning journalist, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and a special correspondent at ABC News, he has covered major international news stories around the world and has received both a National Magazine Award and a Peabody Award. Nick Quested is executive director and owner of Goldcrest Films, one of the world’s premiere documentary brands.

“It has been only five months since the UN General Assembly convened and ratified the new Sustainable Development Goals – and Baltimore is already pushing forward to localize this global agenda, proving it can be a model for cities around the world who want to build locally-grounded strategies to tackle sustainable development needs.” ~ Dr. Sandra Ruckstuhl

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan is currently working on matters related to the implementation of sustainable development goals in Baltimore. His work and that of his colleagues is discussed in several new articles featured at the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN).

The University of Baltimore, its College of Public Affairs and the Jacob France Institute in its Merrick School of Business is serving as lead university partner to facilitate a process that articulates Baltimore’s strategies and goals in support of sustainable development.

Baltimore has been selected as a model city for the new USA Sustainable Cities Initiative (USA-SCI). The project, facilitated by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and Climate Nexus, and funded by the Kresge Foundation via Columbia University, brings together academic institutions and key stakeholders to support the UN’s newly adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—a series of global aspirations and priorities designed to take on major sustainable development challenges. Additional details below.

Jeffrey Sachs, special advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and director of SDSN, believes Baltimore can serve as a trailblazer in demonstrating how the SDGs could work for cities in the United States, and the importance of addressing social issues, such as race and class and poverty alleviation, along with economic ones.

“I am thrilled to be working with Baltimore and its citizens to build on past successes, to find new, innovative solutions to persistent development challenges, and to support Baltimore to become a leader in the world of sustainable development,” Sachs said.

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

The proposals for reform will be sent to the constituent college faculty senates and eventually to the University Faculty Senate and senior administration for further consideration and possible implementation in AY 16-17. The taskforce is carefully reviewing Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR)  as well as the latest Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) standards.
