For rich insights into Iran, the Middle East, and the geopolitics of energy, consider Karim Sadjadpour, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Karim advises senior U.S., European, and Asian officials, including foreign ministers, military leaders, and heads of state.
A regular contributor to The Atlantic, he writes on the Middle East’s political, economic, cultural, and geopolitical dynamics.
“Karim Sadjadpour is the best of a rising generation of Middle East scholars and commentators. He is an extremely gifted communicator who can convey complex ideas about the world in a manner that is illuminating as well as riveting.
In his speeches, he consistently delivers on the three most important qualities for a public speaker: he is consistently insightful, highly credible, and always entertaining. He has traveled far and wide across the region, and knows the alley-ways and side streets as well as the Parliaments and palaces.
From Cairo to Karachi, Tehran to Tripoli, Karim will take audiences on a memorable and rewarding journey across the fractures and fault lines of a new Middle East.” – Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies
