**This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Friday, July 10.**

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation with Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook and Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams on the evolving relationship between Tehran and Caracas. Hudson Senior Fellow Nadia Schadlow will moderate the event.

As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, the authoritarian leaders in Venezuela and Iran continue to place the interest of their regimes ahead of the wellbeing and safety of their citizens. While former President Nicolás Maduro sustains his corrupt and illegitimate administration in Caracas, Tehran is bolstering the regime's power by maintaining control of the distribution of gasoline and other essential goods. Despite the growing needs of their citizens, the rogue regimes continue to exploit their people’s wealth and resources for their own mutual gain.

What is the United States doing to strengthen its maximum pressure posture toward both countries' leaders? How are the regimes in Iran and Venezuela colluding to perpetuate their corrupt and authoritarian reach, and what danger does this relationship pose to the United States?

Special Representatives Abrams and Hook will address these and other questions.

Reforming the Classification System: Challenges, Approaches, and Priorities

Our national security relies on the careful and deliberate creation, dissemination, and protection of classified information. But some contend that the current system for classifying and declassifying US government records is outdated and imposes significant economic and public policy costs, directly and indirectly harming national security.
