Violent protests have raged across Iran since a twenty-two year old Kurdish-Iranian woman died in police custody after being arrested for immodest dress. According to the New York Times, more than 240 protesters have died since mid-September, but nationwide demonstrations continue. Please join the CSIS Middle East Program for a conversation on the unfolding situation in Iran, what it means for Iran and the region, and where things might go with Yeganeh Rezaian, Arash Azizi, and Kirsten Fontenrose, with opening remarks from Jason Rezaian. 

This event is made possible by general support to CSIS.
