Highlights from the Iran Salon
On March 23, 2017, Asia Society Switzerland held its first Salon event on the topic of Iran. The evening was designed to provide a range of different perspectives on a complex and often misunderstood country and its complicated relationship with the rest of the world. Speakers included Ramita Navai, a British-Iranian journalist who was the Times correspondent in Tehran from 2003–2006, and has written a book about Tehran called “City of Lies”; Hossein Rassam, a political analyst on Iran, who used to work for the British Embassy in Tehran (before being arrested during the “Green Revolution” in 2009); and Philippe Welti, former Swiss Ambassador to Iran and India.
