Through continuous personal engagement and hosting several workshops, ORG has focussed on moving the frozen negotiations forward and creating a vision for what a final resolution deal might look like. Our meetings have brought together former senior ambassadors and specialists in the nuclear field from the European Union, Iran, Russia and the United States. Together, they explore areas of potential agreement and promote policy proposals to various governments and officials involved in the negotiations.
ORG has been recognised at the highest levels of government for its contributions:
“The work done by Oxford Research Group is the best amalgamation of creative ideas in a workable frame.” – Senior Negotiator from the United States
“This in depth work could not have been done as part of the official process and it was very valuable support for the negotiations.” – William Hague, UK Foreign Secretary, 2010-14
In addition, ORG has published numerous seminal analytic works on the confrontation between Iran, Israel and the West, including:
