Iran, French Elections and EU’s Vague Future
Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Ali Esmaeili Ardakani

Increasing growth of nationalism and populism, discourse-based resistance in the face of globalization, the risk posed by international terrorism, the issue of immigration and refugees, economic crises and other problems have barred analysts from offering an optimistic analysis on the future outlook of the European Union (EU).

Bahram Amir Ahmadian

As a stable country in the restive Middle East region, Iran enjoys a good position to play a better role in the region.

The country would be able to promote this geographical position to a geopolitical one if it could convince eight landlocked countries in Central Asia (including five former Soviet Union republics), Afghanistan (in east) and countries in Caucasus (Azerbaijan and Armenia) to use its geographical space, tie their economies to Iran's economy, take their pipelines through Iran, and also take advantage of the Islamic Republic’s transportation networks.
