Suzanne Maloney

Brookings Foreign Policy experts have come together to create a series of policy memos addressing the “big bets”—opportunities to strengthen President Obama’s second term—and “black swans,” the low probability, high-impact events that could derail the administration’s priorities. These were released at a public event on Thursday, January 17. Senior Fellow Suzanne Maloney discusses how one “big bet”—bridling Iran’s nuclear ambitions—will be a defining factor in the Obama administration’s second term.
