On April 3, 2014, the RAND Corporation held a half-day conference in its Washington office addressing "The Days After a Deal: Iran, Its Neighbors, and U.S. Policy Following a Nuclear Agreement." As nuclear negotiations with Iran approach a deadline for a final deal this summer, the RAND conference looked ahead at some of the critical "day after" questions following a potential nuclear agreement. The conference did not presume that a final deal is a foregone conclusion or that a deal would eliminate the challenges ahead for U.S. regional policy. Consequently, the conference panels addressed not only the prospects for reaching a final deal but also how Iran, the region, and U.S. policy might evolve in the aftermath of a final deal and the strategic consequences of success or failure.
