Professor Emmert Presents on Iranian Nuclear Program at Stanford Law School
On May 3, 2012, Professor Frank Emmert presented on "The Iranian Nuclear Program and the Response of Israel, the EU, and the US: Law and Policy Options in an American Election Year" at Stanford Law School. Dr. Emmert discussed the ambiguity of the Iranian program in the context of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, including the options available to the West. Other issues he addressed included: Should Israel prevent the development of an Iranian nuclear bomb with a pre-emptive strike on Iran's research and enrichment facilities? Could the EU and US influence Iran and Israel toward an outcome that ensures long-term peace and security in the region?
