Iran's Islamic Revolution unleashed a sectarian wave, which has flooded the Middle East. But while many characterize Middle Eastern Shi'ites as under the sway of the Islamic Republic, Shi'ites from countries like Lebanon, Bahrain, Iraq, and Azerbaijan relentlessly work to resist Iranian influence.
Please join analysts from the United States and across the Middle East to discuss Shi'ite strategies to preserve communal independence and how the United States can successfully work with Shi'ite communities outside Iran. This event will coincide with the release of a new report based on firsthand fieldwork in the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and Azerbaijan.
