The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a landmark agreement concluded on 14 July 2015 by Iran and the E3/EU+3—France, Germany and the United Kingdom (E3); China, Russia and the United States (+3); and facilitated by the European Union (EU). The JCPOA appeared to resolve the international crisis over Iran’s nuclear programme, which had started in 2002 and escalated over a dispute regarding Iran’s right to uranium enrichment. The agreement was based on a compromise whereby Iran accepted limits on and strict monitoring of its proliferation-sensitive activities in return for the lifting of international sanctions.1
