A Nuclear-Armed Iran

Type: Paper

In a new report for The Century Foundation, Barry Posen, a Ford International Professor of Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, examines the remaining U.S. options should negotiations and sanctions fail to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear arms. Posen argues that the strategy of deterrence and containment, while widely resisted, has worked for the U.S. before and is preferable to the alternatives, such as preventive war.
