This report, published by Oxford Research Group, is based upon a series of consultations with individuals close to the decision making process on the Iranian nuclear file with the aim of envisioning a workable and realistic solution to the impasse. It looks into the principles that need to be observed in talks between the E3+3 and Iran over the coming months if they are to have any chance of success.
It identifies a set of tangible steps and considerations regarding the conduct, structure and sequencing of negotiations, and thereby offers a persuasive way forward for all parties involved. Given the failures of the previous rounds of talks, and the ongoing deadlock, this report also draws attention to the chief constraints and obstacles to negotiations.
The report has been co-authored with ORG’s Eskandar Sadeghi-Boroujerdi and Gabrielle Rifkind.
