In the past few years there appears to have been substantial changes in the negotiation process regarding the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1, allowing for a deal to be signed on July 14th 2015. This paper seeks to study a five-year process of the negotiations, starting in August 2010, with the intention of finding and analyzing the most important turning points that lead to the signing of this agreement. As a foundation for the analysis, an overall description of the negotiation process is provided, consequently easing the identification of turning points. The concept of turning point analysis as developed by Daniel Druckman is then utilized. Furthermore, using the typical path for security negotiations provided by Druckman, this paper tests this path against that of the Iran nuclear negotiations in order to see if the negotiations conform to the pattern of other security negotiations. The analysis results in the identification of four major turning points in the process, as well as the precipitants for these. It also reveals that the path of the Iran nuclear negotiations conforms rather well to that of security negotiations in general, after taking into consideration an initial escalation in the process.
