Title: “The End of the Islamic Revolution and Iran-US Relations”

Abstract: When and how do revolutions end, and when did the Islamic Revolution of 1979 in Iran end? It ended, or so it will be argued, with the election of Hasan Rouhani as Iran's President in 2013. The ending of a revolution frees foreign policy from revolutionary ideology, and from dependence on revolutionary power struggle, to engage with the rules of international realpolitik. This process will be examined in the context of the Iran-US relations in the last four decades.
