American Enterprise Institute scholar to discuss Iran April 1 at BYU

Michael Rubin, American Enterprise Institute scholar, will present a David M. Kennedy Center Lecture, “Can Diplomacy Tame Iran?” Wednesday, April 1, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

Rubin is a resident scholar in foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. His major research area is the Middle East, with special focus on Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Kurdish society. He also writes frequently on transformative diplomacy and governance issues.

At the American Enterprise Institute, Rubin chaired the “Dissent and Reform in the Arab World” conference series and is also lead drafter of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s special report on Iran.

In addition, Rubin travels to military bases across the United States and Europe to instruct senior U.S. Army and Marine officers deploying to Iraq and Kuwait on issues relating to regional state history and politics, Shiism, the theological basis of extremism and strategy.

He received a bachelor’s degree in biology and master’s and doctorate degrees in history from Yale University.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu, or contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652.
