What will the implementation of the Iran nuclear agreement mean for Iran and the United States?

As parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) prepare for Implementation Day, three Washington Institute scholars explain the process of implementation, the need for enforcing remaining sanctions, and how sanctions relief will affect Iran and the global business environment.

Katherine Bauer, senior fellow at The Washington Institute and a former high-level sanctions official at the U.S. Treasury Department, answers the question “What happens on Implementation Day?”

Matthew Levitt, director of the Institute's Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence and a former Treasury official, assesses the risks remaining for U.S. firms considering investment in Iran and importance of enforcing of the remaining sanctions.

Patrick Clawson, Morningstar Senior Fellow and director of research at The Washington Institute, examines the impact on Iran’s economy, the health of Iran’s economy and the political impact in Iran.
