FPRI Event – Geopolitics with Granieri

May 2, 2017 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

Each month, Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news moderated by Ronald J. Granieri, Executive Director of the FPRI Center for the Study of America and the West.

For this event, the guest scholar is Afshon Ostovar.

Ostovar is an Assistant Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School with a decade of experience working on Department of Defense and federally-funded projects related to national security and the Middle East..

Afshon Ostovar will join us to discuss his new book, Vanguard of the Imam: Religion, Politics, and Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Iran’s most powerful armed force. The book is a thematic history of the Islamic Republic from the roots of its revolutionary system in the Islamic revivalism of the 19th centurty to the impact of sanctions and the Arab Spring on Iranian foreign involvement.

Registration begins at 6:15 pm, with the program to follow from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
