In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Defence – October 24, 2011

Senators embarked on their new study on the topic of protecting Canada from Iranian attempts to acquire dual-use technology. Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently called Iran "the most significant threat in the world to global peace and security".

Senior DFAIT officials David Sproule, Roland Legault and Paul Galveias discussed the legal framework for sanctions during the first part of the meeting.

Andrea Charron, a research associate at Carleton University, and Peter Jones, associate professor at the University of Ottawa, then provided their perspectives on the international use of sanctions and on Iran's regime.
