Iran’s Economic Reintegration: Sanctions Relief, Energy, and Economic Growth Under a Nuclear Agreement with Iran

By Dr. Sara Vakhshouri and Elizabeth Rosenberg

Senior Fellow Elizabeth Rosenberg and Dr. Sara Vakhshouri, president of SVB Energy International, LLC, lay out how the removal of international sanctions on Iran is likely to proceed and what this will mean for Iran's economic prospects - most notably, Iran's energy sector. The report offers recommendations to policymakers on how to clarify and direct the sanctions removal to enhance the credibility of a nuclear deal and give Iran the right incentives to maintain its end of the bargain.
