RUSI’s Iranian Nuclear Pathways (INP) project examines the ways in which the Iranian nuclear dossier might evolve and explores implications and policy options for the UK.

Since the withdrawal of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – or the Iran nuclear deal, as it is commonly known – and Iran’s subsequent decrease in compliance with the agreement’s provisions, the future of the Iranian nuclear programme has become increasingly uncertain. This project studies the factors that impact how the Iranian nuclear programme may develop in the short and medium term, the consequences of these developments for regional dynamics, and the implications for UK policy towards Iran and more broadly.

To do this, RUSI is convening expert roundtables on matters particularly relevant to UK policy on this issue; we are publishing commentaries on key questions addressed by experts from RUSI and elsewhere; and are researching possible pathways to success and failure, supported by a global network of experts.

The project is a collaboration between RUSI’s Proliferation and Nuclear Policy and the International Security Studies’ Unpacking the MENA programme.
