Wilson Center Report on the Americas No. 23: Iran in Latin America: Threat or 'Axis of Annoyance'?

The essays in this report reflect an effort to provide background and context for understanding Iran's relations with Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Venezuela; the articles emphasize the foreign policy objectives and strategies of Latin American nations as well as the strategic objectives of the Iranian government.  Originally presented at a conference at the Woodrow Wilson Center in July 2008, the papers have since been revised, translated, and updated.
