On Our Doorstep: Iran and Hezbollah’s Latin American Networks

December 15, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Many people think the threat of the Iranian nuclear bomb and the Hezbollah stranglehold that could prevent decisive military action is simply Israel’s or the Gulf States’ problem. However, the Islamic Republic of Iran has global hegemonic ambitions and has been consistently building up Hezbollah terror bases in the tri-border area of Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil for years. To understand more about Hezbollah’s growing presence in the Western hemisphere, please be sure not to miss this incredibly informative webinar.

About the speaker: Emanuele Ottolenghi is a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, where he researches sanctions evasion and illicit finance networks linked to Iran and Hezbollah, with special focus on Latin America. Before joining FDD, in March 2010, he headed the American Jewish Committee’s Transatlantic Institute in Brussels, and taught Israel Studies at Oxford University. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Theory from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and an undergraduate degree from University of Bologna, in Italy.
