Can the World Tolerate an Iran with Nuclear Weapons?
In this edition of the Munk Debates, four of the world’s leading thinkers square off to debate one of the most important geopolitical issues of the time: are Iran’s nuclear ambitions a global threat? The Munk Debates are Canada’s premier public policy event. Held semi-annually, the debates provide leading thinkers with a global forum to discuss the major public policy issues facing the world and Canada. Each event takes place in Toronto in front of a live audience, and the proceedings are covered by domestic and international media. Participants in recent Munk Debates include Tony Blair, John Bolton, Niall Ferguson, Rick Hillier, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Holbrooke, Henry Kissinger, Charles Krauthammer, Paul Krugman, Stephen Lewis, Dambisa Moyo, Samantha Power, Lawrence Summers, and Fareed Zakaria. The Munk Debates are a project of the Aurea Foundation, a charitable organization established in 2006 by philanthropists Peter and Melanie Munk to promote public policy research and discussion.

Can the World Tolerate an Iran with Nuclear Weapons?
With tensions between Iran, Israel, and Western powers reaching new highs over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear enrichment program, the tenth edition of the Munk Debates investigates how the world should respond to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. For some, the case for a pre-emptive strike on Iran is ironclad. An Iranian bomb would flood the volatile Middle East with nuclear weapons and trap Israel in a state of perilous insecurity — along with much of the world’s oil supply. Others argue that a nuclear Iran could be the very stabilizing force that the region needs, as the threat of nuclear war makes conventional conflicts more risky. These same voices also ask: can the West and Israel afford to attack Iran when doing so could roll back the Arab Spring and re-entrench reactionary forces throughout the Middle East? In this edition of the Munk Debates — Canada’s premier international debate series — former Israel Defense Forces head of military intelligence Amos Yadlin, Pulitzer Prize–winning political commentator Charles Krauthammer, CNN host Fareed Zakaria, and Iranian-born academic Vali Nasr debate the consequences of a nuclear-armed Iran. For the first time ever, this electrifying debate, which played to a sold-out audience, is now available in print, along with candid interviews with the debaters. With tempers flaring between governments, the world’s oil supply in peril, and global security at risk, the Munk Debate on Iran tries to answer: Can the world tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons?

The Munich Security Conference
Depicted at 2018 Munich Security Conference is a challenging view of the global security environment, marked by a dangerous combination of worsening trends regarding the world’s climate, economy, and society; weakening strategic architectures; challenging technologies; and volatile crisis areas, led by North Korea and Syria. The Palestinian issue was marginalized, given its low influence on Middle East problems in general. Indeed, the Middle East is a secondary focus of attention for the international community, currently occupied with the urgent crisis in the Korean peninsula and the potential for nuclear war. This is particularly true for the United States, whose attention is now almost entirely on East Asia. With the Palestinian issue sidelined, Israel has significant scope for presenting its own initiatives to shape its future environment, with emphasis on relations with the Palestinians. The field of common interests with regional and international players, especially those designed to curb Iran and Sunni terrorism, signifies real potential for progress; positive movement vis-à-vis the Palestinians would help remove obstacles to the fulfilment of such progress. On the other hand, the path to a direct collision given the vector of Iranian influence in Syria and Israel’s resolve to stop it is highly evident.

A Strategic Framework for the Israeli-Palestinian Arena
The public and political discourse in Israel today about the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is grounded in a conceptual binary approach that was formed over the last two decades: striving to resolve the conflict by negotiating a permanent status agreement based on the principle of two states for two peoples between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, or continuing to manage the conflict, as has occurred since 1967. Given that Israel and the Palestinians are currently enmeshed in a political deadlock, the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) formulated a political-security framework for action on the Palestinian issue that has two objectives: to improve Israel’s strategic position and to prevent it from sliding into a one-state reality. The gist of this framework is to design an improved situation that will retain future options for the end of Israel’s rule over the Palestinians in the West Bank, and ensure a solid Jewish majority in a democratic Israel. In other words: the objective of the framework is to prepare the groundwork for a two-state reality for the purpose of preserving a Jewish, democratic, secure, and moral Israel.

Regime Stability in the Middle East

Regime Stability in the Middle East
The wave of uprisings that swept through Arab states in recent years has transformed the Middle East. Against this background, there is a need for a comprehensive analytical model to help assess both the likelihood of regime stability and the probability of regime change. This study proposes a model to identify the key elements that encourage or inhibit regime change. Assigning numerical weight to each of these elements, it analyzes the dynamics between them. Looking at case studies of four states through the prism of the proposed model, the authors examine the elements that led to the instability in Egypt of January 2011, explain why the Saudi Arabian and Iranian regimes are stable, and provide a better understanding of the struggle in Syria, pointing out factors that will be critical to the fate of the civil war.

The Qatar Crisis
The recent dispute between Qatar and some of its neighbors is the most serious dispute among them in years, and has the potential to further destabilize an already turbulent region. But the crisis also presents a potential opportunity. If a united front that includes the United States and the leading countries in the Arab world can induce Qatar to contain its support for organizations that promote extremism and threaten regional order, it could help stabilize the region, limit the reach of the Islamic State, and isolate Iran. The United States, which maintains close relations with both sides, should play an active role in trying to bring its quarreling partners together.
