Highlights from the Iran Salon

March 23, 2017, Villa Tobler, Zurich

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.
