Robert S. Litwak


The headline-grabbing Iran nuclear talks certainly had the attention of celebrated international scholar Robert S. Litwak, who will launch the Council's 2016 International Perspectives Series on Friday, January 15.

His post-talks timely topic is "The Nuclear Agreement with Iran: How Is It Working Out for the U.S. and Its Allies?"

Writing for the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars following the announcement of an agreement with Iran, Dr. Litwak forecast a "what comes next" era when he declared, "The nuclear agreement with Iran is a deal, not a grand bargain. In both Iran and America, the issue is a proxy for a more fundamental debate-in Tehran, about its identity-revolutionary state versus ordinary country-and relationship to the outside world; in Washington, about whether the U.S. objective toward Iran should be behavior change or regime change."

Litwak is Vice President for Scholars and Academic Relations and Director, International Security Studies at the Wilson Institute. His official biography lists his areas of expertise as " Security and Defense; Intelligence; International Security; Nuclear Proliferation/Non-proliferation; Nuclear Weapons; Terrorism; U.S. National Security" and "U.S. Foreign Policy."

In addition to his responsibilities at the renowned Wilson Center, Litwak also serves as an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and as a consultant to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

During the first Clinton administration, Dr. Litwak was Director for Nonproliferation at the National Security Council.

He is the author of several books on international issues and foreign relationships including Outlier States: American Strategies to Contain, Engage, or Change Regimes; Regime Change: U.S. Strategy through the Prism of 9/11; and Rogue States and U.S. Foreign Policy: Containment after the Cold War.
