What are the ideological motives behind Iran’s foreign policy? This new study examines Tehran’s
twin desires to protect national interests and to project real power. Factors determining foreign
policy include:
- Potential economic leader of the Middle East region
- Key player in the oil and gas market
- Centre of resistance against global Western domination
- US and Israel policy
- Syria as the bridge to Lebanon and Palestine
Political, economic, religious and cultural aspects of Iran’s influence abroad are covered.
There is a strong focus on primary sources, as well as interviews with EU, Russian and Middle
East experts, supported by field trips to Iran, Turkey and GCC countries.
