Nested T-duality.

We identify the obstructions for T-dualizing the boundary WZW model and make explicit how they depend on the geometry of branes. In particular, the obstructions disappear for certain brane configurations associated to non-regular elements of the Cartan torus. It is shown in this case that the boundary WZW model is "nested" in the twisted boundary WZW model as the dynamical subsystem of the latter.
