Director of the Middle East Security Program at the Center for a New American Security
Ilan Goldenberg is Senior Fellow and Director of the Middle East Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. He is a foreign policy and defense expert with extensive government experience covering Iran’s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the broader challenges facing the Middle East.
The authors find that on balance, the nuclear deal with Iran is likely to strengthen the nonproliferation regime, having the potential "to prevent the possibility of nuclear
proliferation in the Middle East while also setting positive precedents that can be applied globally."
Ilan Goldberg warns of disastrous consequences were the Iranian nuclear deal to fail, including a greater risk of war and a loss of historic opportunities for cooperation with Iran on Syria and Afghanistan.
